Temple Tour

Yesterday I headed to Calgary with Linda to see the new Mormon temple they built there.  I am really glad I went with her.  It is an absolutely gorgeous building and makes it seem so peaceful and serene inside.  I figured I best go cause I will probly never get the chance to see it again.

Before it is dedicated, they have tours where anyone can go through the building and see it.  I think the nicest part is the baptismal tank that is being held up by 12 oxen representing the 12 tribes of Israel.  They did such a nice job.  Oh they also have the whole thing decorated in a wheat motif, that is really neat.



We got a couple pics of us standing outside the building cause they didnt want pics taken inside but outside is  really nice as well.  And the view out there is just spectacular, they built on a hill and just amazing how much you can see from there.

Then on the way home we stopped in Strathmore for supper and we got hemmed in the parking lot by some illigal parkers and the cops and tow trucks had to come and move a vehicle for us.  It was quite funny really, well probly not so much for the cars that got towed, but for us it was :)

That Temple is just amazing, I lived in Utah when I met the hubby 27 years ago and Salt Lake City sure had some awesome looking mormon temples.

I always wanted to go to the one in Cardston when they opened it to the public but never made it.
