We went to Temple Newsam, which is a mansion built on 1500 acres, with the Elder and Sister Brinkerhoff. There were rolling green hills, huge trees, flowers in full bloom, a pond, stables, farm, and mansion on the property. People and families of all ages flocked to enjoy the sunshine and be in this incredible environment.
