hamilton temple

Last Saturday we took a trip to the Hamilton Temple. It is about a 2 hour drive from our place in Devonport. As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints we try to attend the temple frequently. We go to church every Sunday for regular meetings but going to the temple is a bit different and special. It is also a bit harder to coordinate with kids because going to the temple is an adult only activity. Thankfully we were able to coordinate with our friends the Sasulus to exchange babysitting while we each attended a temple session.
It was a lovely and glorious day. We were worried about cold and rain but the weather was perfect. Chasing around our kids under the age of 2 1/2 kept us on our toes. But the kids all had a great time exploring the temple grounds and Max and Maya did quite well with staying awake almost two hours past their nap time.


  1. Amazing photos of the temple: they tell me that it is cloudy 350 days a year in Hamilton!

  2. Thanks! We were lucky enough to have a beautiful day. The skies were clear and the sun was shinning. Maybe Heavenly Father knew that if we had to struggle with keeping four kids entertained in the Visitor's Center, with out breaking anything, for over 4 hours it would have been a LONG time before we went back again. :)
