In searching for blog posting ideas, a common idea I came across was posting about a personal experience. Well I don't know what to do with that!
So I started thinking - one of my institute teachers is a friend on Facebook, and he leads tours through Church history sites and through Israel every summer. That got me thinking, about how I'd like to go on his trip to Israel next year, say for a graduation thing or something. Yeah, I can dream, right?
So my personal experience I will share is when my family went to the Church history sites. It was the summer of 2007, almost 4 years ago, and it was a 17 day road trip. In a Suburban. 17 days. Suburban. 17. Suburban. 7 People. 17 days. Suburban. Hotels. Sandwiches. 17 days. Suburban.
Well you get the idea.
All of these pictures are from my camera, I think. Which was my camera from before I graduated, which is not as nice as the one I have now. Just saying.
We drove across the country.
We saw road signs and visited places.
We visited other church's temples. But they're not sure what to do with it.
We walked around a lot.
We were silly.
We saw other temples as we drove down the freeway. Don't know where this is at. Louisville?
We saw other cool stuff.
We went to our nation's capital.
We were angry.
Pretty pictures were taken.
We even took some black and white photos at classic spots.
Then we drove some more, up to Vermont.
And we saw the birthplace of Joseph Smith.
And Hill Cumorah.
And the Kirtland Temple. We stayed longer, but my camera died.
We went to Nauvoo too.
We were hard working pioneers.
We were silly and had fun.
We were happy.
We were mad.
We had our noses squished up against windows.
We played jump rope in the parking lot of the visitors' center at Nauvoo.
And clearly, my camera must have died because I don't have any more pictures. But I took a TON of pictures that I won't post on here any more of.
Well, I hope you enjoyed your short journey through our LONG trip across America, almost 4 years ago, so it's possible things don't really look like that anymore, what with construction and other things you can't help like that.
