I need apoligize for being slothful in posting more pics and telling more about our trip. But here we go. First of all I would like you to meet Sister Mitchell and Sister Knowles.

They were our guides when we went to Kirtland to the visitors center. They did an excellent job. You could tell they loved what they were doing.

Next we have some pictures that were in the visitors center. They are some beautiful paintings.

Here are a few pics of Marc and Candace's home plus a couple of Marc and Candace themselves.
And of course we couldn't leave out Buster. Thank you again for putting up with us for a few nights. We love you.

Our trip home turned out to be an adventure. We were supposed to have left Detroit at 1:30 in the afternoon, but it was 4:30 before we finally got to leave. You ask, "why the delay?" Well I'll tell you. The plane that was supposed to have left from the same gate as ours developed a hydraulic leak. That made it unsafe to fly. So they had to locate a mechanic to fix it. It took forever. They finally wound up putting the passengers from that plane on another flight from a different gate. They still thought it would be fixed in time everyone on our flight to make their connections. But that didn't happen. By the time they got it fixed it was too late for us to make our connection in Chicago to Albuquerque. So they pulled those of us that were going to Albuquerque, Little Rock, and Oakland and put on different flights. Those going to Little Rock were sent to Dallas where they had to spend the night. Those going to Oakland were put on a different flight. I'm not sure which one. Those going to Albuquerque were routed through Nashville then to Houston and then to Albuquerque. We supposed to have arrived in Albuquerque at 5:00 pm, but it was 9:45 pm when we finally got there. The funny thing is, our luggage beat us to Albuquerque. We got home about 12:40 and it was a little after 1:00 when we got to bed. I had major TB by the time we got home LOL. Then I had to get up at 4:00 to go to work. But we made it home safe and sound. We're still glad we went. We had a great time.
