SUMMER RECAP: Part 2 The Palmyra Chapter

Oh Beautiful Palmyra!!!!

This is where our cross-country journey began....
Red Vines + Dr. Pepper = Crazy Delicious!

We were able to make it to Palmyra in time for the Hill Cumorah Pageant,
it was wonderful, until.....

There was a torrential downpour and a lightning storm and with about 30 minutes left in the show they canceled it! It was a total bummer but I guess it's a reason to go back.
But the storm was pretty fantastic.

At around 11:00 pm we had to find a camp ground. We went to the Palmyra fair grounds and set up camp in between two RVs on soggy ground, but at least we had a place to sleep and a good nights rest. Trevor is so pretty in the mornings.....

We got to go visit the sights the next day, here we are in front of the Smith farm house, where Moroni appeared to Joseph.

Taking in the Sacred Grove

There really is an incredible spirit there

We went to the place where they printed the first Books of Mormon. Trevor found one that was printed in his missions native tongue: Bishlama
Can you see how excited he is about it?

I think this was Trevor's favorite part of Palmyra....

The Hill Cumorah

I felt the need to twirl in the Hill Cumorah with our friend Josh
(Don't be hatin the outfit, reflectors are a necessity not a luxury)

Palmyra was wonderful!!! We highly recommend it, we are so grateful that it was so close and that we were able to go.


  1. I love Palmyra! I went with my family on a church history tour and it was by far one of my favorite trips. You guys are so funny I loved your pictures.

  2. It looks so fun! I miss the Hill Cumorah pageant. I'm glad you guys got to go. Fun travels!

  3. The nice thing about the Hill Cumorah pageant is if you miss the ending you can always read the book to find out what happens! I think the spinning with the reflectors is my favorite picture!

  4. You crack me up :) That's so awesome that you guys were able to do all that. I would love to visit all those sites someday!

  5. You guys are hilarious! It is fun to see your experience bck east! We missed you this weekend!
    Those silly jobs are always getting in the way!


    I didn't know you had a blog! I am so glad you so because obviously we never see each other. So glad you are doing well!!

    love, your favorite cousin Amber!
