Our trip

So my pictures aren't in order, but here are some different things that we did before, during, and after my family reunion in Ohio.
OUR FAMILY IN FRONT OF PALMYRA TEMPLE
(outside of Joseph Smith's family farm)



SUNSET AT LAKE ERIE

My kids all got pretty wet, but we were flying home the next day and didn't want to deal with wet swim suits. Ashley's shorts were dripping so she ended up just in her diaper.

The waves were really big because of the wind, but the kids thought it was awesome.
PALMYRA
Here is the monument at the Hill Cumorah.

This is where the first copy of the Book of Mormon was published. We loved this site and my kids liked walking on the same floor that Joseph Smith walked.

This is in the sacred grove. Even though we don't know exactly where, it was a very neat experience for my kids.
NIAGARA FALLS
This is the American Falls behind us. We LOVED the boat ride.
This is before we went on the boat.


We only really got good pictures of the American Falls. There was too much water getting on us at Horseshoe Falls--but they were spectacular!

HORSEBACK RIDING


REUNION
My girls are modeling the tutus Aunt Becky made with the scarfs that Grandma Heath made.

The beach at the house we stayed at. They are swimming with dad and their cousins.

KIRTLAND
Our family in front of the temple.

Side view of the temple.

On the steps with cousins at the Johnson Farm. These are the steps Joseph was dragged down when he was tarred and feathered.

We had a great time!!! We were so glad to get to see so many meaningful and fascinating sites. We also enjoyed the chance to be with family for a lot of the trip as well.

So close, yet so far away. What happened to NYC, you could have stayed with us, maybe next time when you're out this way. Looks like you had a great time.
