Kirtland Revisited

We had the opportunity to go to Kirtland again today. We went with a big APX group and we were able to bring our husbands. It was fun to be able to go back and see everything with Devin. We went and took the tour through the temple first and then we went and saw all the "Mormon" stuff. I think we all enjoyed that part a bit more. This time was fun as well because we also got to see the ashery and the sawmill, which we didn't get to see the last time we were there. Here are some pictures from our little outing today. If any of you haven't been to Kirtland, you should definitely go if you have the opportunity. It's worth it!

We learned that Kirtland was the place where the hymn "High on the Mountain Top" was written. And the sister missionary told us that the mountian that this song is taling about is the tiny hill that you can sort of see in the background of this picture. Doesn't it just look like a huge mountain?This is a replica of the ashery that Newell K. Whitney owned. The products made here were what helped Newell make most of his money.

This is a replica of the sawmill that was built to help build the temple.

A couple of other random pictures. We sure have one cute nephew!

I'm so glad we were able to make it out there with the boys. It was definitely fun to do something different and have a fun little day trip. And I'm glad that you're hopefully finally over all of the flooding drama. That was seriously such a bummer!
