On Memorial Day, Josh and I were in Palmyra, New York with his parents and sister. We had such a great time on this weekend vacation. It was soooo nice to get away and spend time with family. We started out at the Smith Family Farm and the Sacred Grove. It was really a great experience. Here are a few pictures:

This is in the Sacred Grove with the sun peeking throw the trees:

This is the view of the temple from the Smith Farm:

After the Sacred Grove, we headed up to the temple. It was beautiful! Here's the pictures I took while there:

All the doors and windows were the "Sacred Grove" stained glass. They were BEAUTIFUL!
Then off to the Hill Cumorah!

View from the top or the hill:

There was a really cool Visitor's Center at the Hill Cumorah that we went to and we watched the Joseph Smith movie. It was great, as always! It was really such a great experience and it was fun to see all the sights again! We drove threw Palmyra then grabbed lunch on our way home and said goodbye to the Wray as they went to explore Washington D.C. for the week. We were able to have another WONDERFUL weekend with the Wray family the following weekend as well...Another post for that one as well!
