Planting Flowers at the Temple...

Sorry to those who commented on this post. I had to remove it because I was having problems with my blog. Fixed now.... but I had to copy and paste them all in one comment. SORRY!

Our church youth group had the opportunity to plant flowers at the Ogden Temple. It was a gorgeous day and a great day of service!

Instead of planting flowers like we thought we were going to do, we ended up pulling the dead ones out and weeding the area. It was FUN !

No we are not praying ↓ (though heaven knows we should be!)....just pulling bulbs off the dead plants. Not sure we did much good because the temple grounds are always kept meticulously well-groomed and sooooo beautiful. But hopefully we did help just a bit.

We spent lots of time on our knees....well, we WERE at the temple afterall! lol

The girls and leaders who were able to go.

Just being girls!

Stephanie trying to take down her leader! I won.....ha ha HA!!!

It was the temple gardener's birthday and so we had cake and ice-cream even though he wasn't able to make it! We had fun celebrating without him anyway!
Bryce and Brad having a good laugh...

Me and my boys! Yummy cake!!!

The end.... :D
