Halloween isn't a big holiday in Wellington so the Primary President ask certain families to have candy for trick or treating.  We had the opportunity of being one of the families and it was fun to be able to see the children all dressed up in their costumes.

Hamilton Temple Trip - Young Adults

It is early morning and we are preparing to leave for a temple trip to the Hamilton Temple.  Guy who is standing next to Don just received his mission call to Portugal and he is going to the temple for the first time.  The rest are going to do baptisms and confirmations.  The ones that went were Guy, Zeerona, Chelsea, Jasmine, Grace, Destiny and Alison and the McVey's and the Overton's. We rented a 12 person van to accommodate all of us. 

We packed a lunch and stopped at a table next to the road for lunch.   When we arrived at Hamilton we stayed at some old church dorms.  The men were on the second floor and the women were on the first floor.  It was old but it only cost $10.00 for the night and we had to bring all of our own bedding and towels.

This is the group before entering the temple.

Friday night we went to the Hamilton Gardens but didn't get to stay very long because it was closing and the guard was nice enough to let us go in for just a minute.

Guy is standing outside after he has gone through the temple for the first time. 

Of course we had to stop at The Big Apple Cafe for an ice cream cone on the way home.  The ice cream in New Zealand is the best ice cream that we have ever tasted.
