As mentioned before, Josh's parents and sister, Paige, came out for Memorial Day Weekend! We had so much fun having them here and being able to do all these fun things with them. They got in late Friday night, so on Saturday we headed out to Kirtland. It was the first time for me to go and see all the sights since we've been here. I went about 13 years ago with my family but didn't remember much. I did take a fair amount of pictures like I promised. I didn't think you would want to see all hundred of them, so here are a few of my favorites:

The Kirtland Temple:

We were able to take a tour through the temple and walk through the grounds. What a great spirit that the temple still has. It was a great experience to be able to walk where the prophet and the early saints walked.
This is just a picture taken in Kirtland on our tour through the old city:
This next picture is of us in front of the N.K. Whitney & Co. Store. This store was located on the corner of the two main streets at the time. The doors are actually the original ones that were on the store.
Myself, Josh, Momma Jill, Paige and Daddy Vince:

This is the Saw Mill...nothing too exciting, I just LOVE how the picture turned out:

Just a cool picture near the Saw Mill:
After visiting the site, we went to Mary Yoder's Diner, which is an Amish diner. We enjoyed GREAT food there! Then we headed home! On Sunday after church, we went to Niagra Falls and on Monday we went to Palmyra. More to come on those adventures. We had a great time in Kirtland and enjoy the nice Spirit that we were able to feel and share with family!
