Summer Catch Up: The Indianapolis LDS Temple

We feel lucky that our time in Indianapolis overlapped with the opening of the new LDS Temple here. It is an incredibly beautiful building that represents so much to us. We believe that the promises we make in temples will allow us to be with our families forever, because of Jesus Christ.

An open house was held in the weeks leading up to the opening of the temple, and tours were open to the public. We were able to go once with Michael's parents and his sister Pam's family, and then again with a girl in Michael's dental school class.

Michael's mom was so nice to come up and watch Westin the weekend that the temple was dedicated so that we could attend the service together. President Eyring came, and it was a special experience to see this temple dedicated in this city that we love!

The night before the temple dedication Michael and I were able to go to the cultural celebration and see a great program put on by the youth of the surrounding area. They did such a great job. My favorite parts were probably the choreographed hip hop remix version of Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree, or the choreographed version of the Indy 500 complete with "crashes" and kids being carried off by "medics". It was a fun weekend and a special time for Indianapolis!
