PALMYRA-Fri. Aug. 28th

We first got to go the printing press where the first 5,000 copies of the Book of Mormon were made. A lot of the printing press like the floors and some of the brick were still the original stuff! We also got to walk inside the replica of Joseph Smiths home and saw his room where the angel Moroni came to visit him. After, we went inside the frame house (around 85% original) and saw where Joseph Smith hid the plates under the bricks of the fireplace. The last picture is of us in the sacred grove, so neat and beautiful through there! We also stopped by at the Palmyra temple and hill Cumorah. It was all so awesome!!

NIAGARA FALLS- Thurs. Aug. 27th

Our boat got so close to the falls it felt like it was going to get sucked under by the water rushing down...crazy!



We camped our first night in Cooperstown and our second night in Canada. Our first night we roasted hot dogs and smores at night and in the morning the boys went to check out the baseball hall of fame while the girls and Jase took a paddle boat out for a spin on their mini lake. The second night we drove past pizza hut on the way to the camp site and got sucked in...raw hot dogs on a stick or stuffed crust yummy pizza...hmmm??! But of course smores were still a must!


It was all of our first times at an actual big horse race! It was so fun to see the horses rush by and the crazy crowd going wild! I never knew the horse races were such a big event....there were people everywhere-some dressed up all fancy and some dressed way down. It also had a carnival feel with all the different popcorn, cotton candy, pretzel, hotdog, etc. stands!

Our Three Day Vacation

We took a three day trip around New York with Ryan, Meagan, and their little boy Jase before we get locked into our first year of dental school!
