A New Temple!!!!

Since the construction for the new Brigham City Temple began, I have wanted to go take a look; for me, there's an excitement about seeing the construction happen. So, a couple friends and I headed up that way to take some pictures. After some heckling and confused-looking faces, we made our way to the temple site, which resulted in these pictures. And yes, I know it's "only a hole in the ground" but it's the idea that a temple is coming that makes it exciting and piques my curiosity :)

Here are the pictures I took. I also provided three links (Brigham, City, and Temple above). Additionally, I just read that the groundbreaking for the Rome, Italy Temple will be Oct 23, 2010 and that Pres Monson will be presiding there!!!!! Isn't that exciting!!!?!?!?!?!? They'll unveil the design at the groundbreaking...I can't wait to see what it's going to look like
