Casa; Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

After we left Barcelo, we went to Grammy and Grampy's home within the Temple compound of the Santo Domingo Temple.  They live in an apartment on the 3rd floor of a 4 story building.  The 4th floor is the MTC.  There are more apartments and "guest" lodging (for those attending the temple) on the 2nd and 3rd floors.  The first floor had a cafeteria, lobby, etc.  We stayed on the 2nd floor.  Our room was very nice, much like a dorm room.  We had a great bathroom and bunk beds.  The kids were so excited for the bunk beds, we played this bizarre game of musical beds all the nights we were there.

The casa builidng (not the skyscraper, the other one):

Across the parking lot:

An absolutely amazing place to live.  It sometimes seems like my Dad posts pictures of the Temple from every angle, all different lighting, etc. I understand why never grows old and it is incredible every time you look at it.  I love the cemetery and all, but I trade views in a heartbeat.

Attached to my parents' apartment is the clinic.  There they give lots of vaccinations, consultations, and anything else the missionaries might need health-wise.

Amos took this picture of my Dad at his desk, and I love it.  My Dad worked hard taking care of the missionaries while we were there:

We loved being at Grammy and Grampy's house.  Wherever they are truly feels like home to me.
