Oquirrh Temple Open House

We attended the open house for the new Oquirrh Temple in South Jordan, Utah. Did you know that South Jordan is the first city in the world to have two temples within it's borders? Did you also know that Auntie can see the temple from her front yard, b/c it's only about 3 blocks away? Did you also know that someone about 4 doors down, built an enormous shed that totally blocks an otherwise perfect view of the temple from her back deck? That, my friend was tragical, and there wasn't a single thing that could be done about it. But she can still walk out the front or further out the back and see it, and she can see the Draper temple on a clear day from her deck chair. It's quite lovely to live in a land that is dotted with temples and steeples, so very pretty and a quiet but powerful reminder of our blessings.
