We arrived at the temple grounds and my heart started to get skip a beat just knowing where we were and what we were about to witness. I silently prayed that there wouldn't be protestors as there have been in years past...I just didn't want to have to see that after seeing such a beautiful production. We found an excellent parking spot nearby and headed across to the temple grounds. It was only 6 p.m. and there were already tons of people (note to self - don't go on opening night). Unfortunately, we ended up sitting a little further back than I had wanted to, but we could still see fairly well. As we waited, I ate my dinner and Melon Man wandered off to the restroom trailers, then over to the visitor's center, and then headed back to me where he later decided to finally eat his dinner.
We tried taking pictures of us with my cell phone camera while we were waiting, but I just don't have the hang of it yet so I look horrible in each one of these, but it doesn't help that Melon Man kept making silly faces in each picture. At first I was getting irritated that he kept doing that, but now as I write this and look at each of them, I just laugh. He's such a free spirit. He has a happy heart and doesn't let much get to him. I am so grateful for that. I wish I could be more like him in that respect. However, I do wish he would trim up that goatee and moustache!
