A Visit from the Hockemas

Amy and Chuck's family had been vacationing in Canada and came back through New York to visit us and see the church history sites.  They were on a tight schedule.  We met them in Palmyra and toured the Grandin Print Shop where the first copies of the Book of Mormon were printed and bound. Sister Barlow provided an excellent tour.

We then drove to the Smith Farm and Sacred Grove for a quick walk through.  This is the Angel Moroni atop the Palmyra Temple visible from the farm and Sacred Grove.

We hurried to drive up the Hill Cumorah at dusk and got up and down before closing at 9 pm.  Drove home to a supper of pulled pork sandwiches and cole slaw.  Everyone was pretty tired.

Wednesday morning, I prepared  a hearty but leisurely breakfast.  We went over to the Brigham Young baptism site and then drove to the Tomlinson Inn and Tomlinson cemetery.  Then the Hockemas headed eastward.  It was great to have them here.
