Thursday night, my sister-in-law, Becky, hosted a Cookie Lee party. She and her cousin Janie had made plans to take a trip to Manti to go to the temple there the following Saturday and Becky invited me. I was so excited to go because I had never been there before....not even for the pageant. We went with Janie, her Dad, Jack, and step mom, Cindy and my mom. There is never a dull moment in the Jensen family, I've decided. Jack and Cindy were so nice and Janie is so fun! She's obsessed with taking pictures, so hopefully she doesn't care I stole these from her! It was such a fun trip. The temple is amazing. I'm so glad I got to go! I couldn't believe some of the craftsmanship. It is amazing to stop and think about how much work had to go into it before the modern conveniences we have now. I was most impressed by an article of temple clothing that they had hanging in a shadow box right after you enter. It was an original version from the 1800s. It was such a neat experience!
