New York Adventures.

On July 15th, Chuck, Jack, lil' Glen and I all headed up to Palmyra, New York. Chuck's family has participated in the Hill Cumorah Pageant for as long as I've known them. For the past 6 years, Mom and Dad Krebs have been the "Work Crew" Leaders (the group of boys that set up and take down the stage as well as run the lights and special effects during the show). The Hill Cumorah Pageant is a spectacular show that tells the story of the Book of Mormon, the history of the people living in the Americas and how Christ visited them. The Pageant holds a special place in our hearts. So, we made the 10 hour trek to Palmyra, NY where the church was started to experience the Pageant as audience members (a first for some of the Krebs family!) and to explore different church sites.

We decided to drive through the night because then we wouldn't have to stop to feed the little guy AND we would get more time in New York. It actually went pretty well. Jack did wake up at 3am to eat and took a little while to go back to sleep (poor Chuck hadn't slept yet and was trying to calm the poor tyke down for what seemed like eternity). But by 4:15am, the whole car was sleeping again while I took my shift at the wheel. Needless to say, Sunday we were all a little groggy.
