Jon and I have been planning for sometime to make the trip to Orlando, Florida for the temple. So finally this past weekend we were able to go. We left Friday afternoon after our classes and headed to Orlando. It is about a three and a half hour drive but four if you don't know where you are going. So we arrived at the La Quinta hotel that evening and decided to drive around. We ran into this huge mall called, Mall Millenia where we met Santa. The Mall was absolutely huge and it was heavily decorated for Christmas. We saw the biggest contained tree of our lives in the mall. After a little window shopping we headed to Mimi's Cafe for some dinner. Unfortunately I started to not feel very well so our evening was cut short. Saturday morning we got ready and went Ikea for some more shopping and Jon had to have their delicious cinnamon roles, I had a hot dog. After shopping, we set out on our adventure of finding the temple. We made it just in time for one of the last endowment sessions of the day. The temple was closing early so needless to say it was packed. On Friday they did 1180 endowments and were hoping to get 1000 more on Saturday. We had a great time and we always enjoy the peaceful feeling we get from attending the temple. We took a few pictures and headed home. It was a great mini-vacation and are already planning our next trip.
