Some of the cousins have come for a visit and one of the highlights so far has been our tour of the new Indianapolis temple. It’s an exciting event in many ways but it’s especially so because we’ve been able to take our children to see the inside and have had lots of friends go see too.
Other than Kate’s weird aversion to putting on the booties to keep the carpet clean (imagine full-on screaming) and Evelyn’s fear of falling into the baptistry (imagine another round of screams), everyone enjoyed seeing the inside of the Lord’s house before it is dedicated and only members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in good standing will be allowed to enter.
If you’re in the Indianapolis area, tours run through August 8th! Visit templeopenhouse.lds.org to make reservations or just show up and the guides will be happy to show you around. It is a beautiful edifice and a unique opportunity!
