the kirtland templekirtland is home to some lds church history sites... places i have visited when i was young with my family, but ben wanted to get in on the fun as well.
the kirtland temple doesn't belong to the lds church today, it belongs to the community of christ church.
but, it was really great to be able to tour it and learn more about its history.
we also ventured over to the areas that the lds church does own, including the n.k. whitney store that was a local market for all who lived in kirtland many years ago (most residents at the time were lds/mormon).
it was fun and beautiful. it took a little longer that i would have liked, but that's what happens when people get super excited about giving tours. which is understandable.
