Trip to Kirtland, Ohio

We traveled to Kirtland on the weekend of April 13th. We took a tour of the visitor's center and surrounding buildings, like the sawmill, the ashery, the Whitney Store and home, and the Johnson hotel. We later travelled down to the Johnson farm, which was a spiritual experience. The Whitneys and the Johnsons were incredibly humble and generous people.
We later took a tour of the Kirtland temple, which the Community of Christ church is trying to maintain/restore. It was amazing to be there and the tour guide was very knowledgeable.
When the kids had had enough of that, we went to a park and flew kites.
Then drove to our hotel in Cleveland right by Lake Erie and had fun swimming, etc.
