Saturday in Adam ondi ahmen

We spent the night in Jamesport. It's a great little Amish town. The place we stayed was so great-- we felt very welcome and taken care of. The owners visited with us a bit and told us they could tell we were LDS and that everyone of the locals would know too. Indeed when we went to get a little dinner we felt like we were being watched.
Saturday was spent getting to independence where we will head home from on Monday. We went by Adam ondi ahmen and walked around a little. It seems at each place we stop David and or I have a chance to share feelings and testimony of the sacredness of where we are. It certainly was a sacred spot in Adam ondi ahmen. It is very peaceful and big and safe. Later we went to the Far West temple site, then to two old pioneer cemeterys. The kids were so good and patient with the whole cemetery visits. I know it's not their favorite thing to do.

*whining up ahead. Warning*

We ended up in a "bed and breakfast" that is really odd and interesting. The kids make it really fun laughing at all the oddness. I am thankful for the bed and hot shower and don't mean to complain, but it's a old house or mansion that is creaky and musty. I couldn't sleep well cause I was so freaked out about the mustiness and wondering if all the pictures came alive in the middle of the night. This place is full of stuff and I'm feeling crowded because of it. The owner had some music on when we got here which was chimy type music. Kim said the boys were kinda creeped out with the whole thing. I just must stop. I can't explain it all but I'm kinda bummed we are staying here again tonight.

So good to have a sister who consistently makes me smile and even laugh. Can't wait to see you later this week!
