Once we arrived in Palmyra, we went to the Palmyra Temple and walked around the grounds. I had hoped we could do baptisms there while we were on our trip, but I waited too long to contact them and by the time I did, they had no appointments available. But it was nice to walk around the grounds together.

|Ella loves to take goofy selfies...this is just one of many that she took during our trip.|
We also spent some time in the Hill Cumorah Visitor Center. There are some great displays about the Book of Mormon, about teachings of President Monson and about Joseph Smith. We also got to watch two new segments of Meet the Mormons.
Then finally we headed to the bed and breakfast we were staying at. It was a cute room and the owner, Leann, always had nice little touches...cookies or other snacks each night, chocolates on our pillows, delicious breakfasts. We enjoyed our stay there. In fact, she had 4 cute children and Ella enjoyed talking to them. One of her daughters even made Ella a little gift before we left.
