Brigham City Temple Open House

On Labor Day, we went to the Brigham City Temple Open House.  Today I learned during conference that approximately 400.000 people attend this open house is a four week period.  I'm fairly positive that 2/3 of this number visited the temple on Labor Day.

The temple is gorgeous and is built in similar style to the Salt Lake, Manti, Logan, and St. George temples.  It is in the center of Brigham City across from the tabernacle and looks like it really fits.

We learned a few things from our visit.  For future open houses, we are going to select a weekday morning and be the first to arrive.  We tried not to sweat too much while Jen took our photos.  Despite the heat and the long wait the temple was beauriful.

Brian said something very similar when we heard the numbers of people that went to the Temple open nouse.

What a beautiful temple! I've never been to an open house before - sounds busy... That's a good thing. Still hot in Utah, eh? We're now in the mid-sixties-to-lower-seventies range during the days. There are some who are pining for the warmer days of summer (i.e. Joe ;) but personally, I love autumn. Neither too hot nor too cold. Let us know if you and Jerry are ever in this neck of the woods (and yes, Maine counts - we love to drive up there).
