Joseph and I were so lucky this weekend, we had the privilege of attending the Washington, D.C. Temple. Although it takes about 4 1/2 hours, this is our assigned temple. We had a beautiful drive, early Saturday morning - and then we were so grateful the Bloods let us drop our monkeys off for the afternoon. It probably was a little longer than they were hoping - we were gone for 6 hours. But we enjoyed a stake priesthood meeting on the 7th floor of the temple, an endowment session, and Joseph and I both ran into old friends that we haven't seen for years (which is one reason we took so long). We knew the kids were in great hands and appreciate the Bloods taking their day to help out. The kids didn't want to leave, and we are so grateful for their friendship.
