The Sacred Grove, "early in the spring"

Palmyra Temple, where Scott and I spent a few happy hours; and the replica of the Smith's first log cabin

The very bricks under which the plates were hidden, or so we were told

Whitmer farm (I think), where much of the translation work was done 


The kids getting their crazies front of the temple...before our long drive home

Who knows how much they'll remember, but we all felt the goodness of what started here.

The first bunch of pictures we've got ready from our Spring Break trip are those we took at Niagara Falls.  We were there just one night, but though it rained fairly heavily at times the first afternoon, we got picture-perfect weather the next morning, as well as the place all to ourselves.  Mainly, though, I think the kids will remember that we stayed in a hotel with a pool and hot tub!

Easter Pictures

We've promised these photos in numerous phone conversations today, and though we would like to caption them all, I think we're in over our heads for today.  So here's the dump, sort of in order from crazy to less so -- with love to all of you!
