HEY GUYS. sorry it's been a 2 weeks. i have been anxious as ever to finally blog these pictures but Tyler and i have been so crazy busy ever since we got back to Utah that i haven't even had a second! but alas! here i am! with loads of pictures from our awesome drive home. brace yourself. there are probably 100 haha.
so we took a super long route home. we were over on the East coast and figured since we were already there, we should make a little extra drive to see some things we wanted to before heading back to Utah!
1st stop, PHILLY! we were only there for a good 2 hours, but we heard that's all you need anyways :) we saw Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, then had some og philly cheesesteak sandwiches. so prime!
we drove up to New York next. my cousin Briana and her husband Jase are doing summer sales up in Long Island so that's where we stayed!
we spent Sunday in NYC which was super awesome. went to Church and saw the temple downtown... then walked a whole lot + had lunch at the yummiest place in the world. we walked like 30 blocks to get there and spent more than we should have but it was totally worth it :) i loooveeee to take lots of pics in NYC!
last stop on our long journey home before we decided to drive straight back to Utah, was Palmyra. which was seriously amazing. i cannot even describe how truly peaceful and spiritual that was, to actually see and stand where Joseph Smith had the First Vision. where he saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. no one can enter that grove and not know and feel for themselves that it truly did happen. and wow, everyone needs to visit those amazing Church History sites.
the drive home back to Utah was definitely a long one. we drove 2 days STRAIGHT. like through the night straight. 30 hours, kids. insane. but it was also beautiful and we got to see all new and different states vs the drive out. i'm so grateful for our adventures together! i love them so much.
and HELLO UTAH! we missed you. it is good to be home :)
