Every year our stake has a big push for Stake Temple Day. It is discussed months in advance, and people are asked to make commitments early and often to attend the temple that day. It is a big deal.
The goal is to spend the entire day at the temple, but since we have always had kids while we have been in this stake, Garry and I have not been able to do that. Instead, we have created our own tradition where I will spend the morning in the temple, we meet afterward to have lunch and go to the bookstore and then Garry spends the late afternoon and evening in the temple. It is always a beautiful day!
