Palmyra and Niagara Falls
Jon and I finally took some time together and went up to see the church sites in Palmyra New York. It was an amazing experiance as we walked the the Smith family farm and went to see the sacred grove. We also went to the Hill Cumora and to the store where the first book of mormons were made. We learned many interesting facts and enjoyed the cute little area. The temple there was beautiful and the area surrounding everything was so green. After that we went further up north to see the falls. Jon wanted so badly to cross into Canada, but I kindly reminded him that I didn't have my passport with me. He was so sad, but he got over it and we went on a boat to the falls. Jon and I have bad luck when we pay for tours because every time we end up getting drenched with rain no matter what we do. You already get wet from the falls mist, but when you add a terenchal downpoor you get soaked. I could hardly keep my eyes open to see the beautiful view. They were so pretty and I am glad we went. We are just packing up now to head to D.C. and start a new adventure there. Hope all is well. I only have a few pics but I will put more on later.
