We were living in Kansas when the prophet announced they would be building a temple in Brigham City, Utah; at the same time they also announced the Kansas City, Missouri temple and I was very excited to take the kids to the open house. Sadly we moved before it was completed, but thankfully we moved to Utah and were able to attend the open house for the Brigham City temple, which looks exactly like the Kansas City temple so it is almost as good as being there.
We went on Saturday, and Labor day weekend so it was crazy busy but the kids were so great waiting in line and being reverent and respectful when we walked through. They were amazed with the beauty of it all and I loved walking through each room and explaining the purpose of each.
When we walked into the Celestial room Hannah's eyes got really big and she said "Wow, this is my dream house". I hope they can remember the feelings of being in the temple, it may not have been dedicated yet, but there was a very special spirit present.
I love that we have so many temples here in Utah, I want nothing more than for my kids to love the temple and all the blessings it brings as much as I do.
