My favorite part

We took a little side trip to the Las Vegas temple. We four walked all the way around it at one-year-old walking speed.
Quoting some facts from here: The temple is on 10.3 acres of land.
The temple is 80,350 square feet.
The outside is made of "White precast stone walls and copper roof and detailing."
Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated this temple in December of 1989.
My favorite:
a decorative cabbage
Interesting tidbit: The angel Moroni statue of the Las Vegas Nevada Temple faces east, away from the city, symbolically heralding the Second Coming of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
Later that day, we had this cool moon following us home.
