Temple trip, city walking and Visitors!

Back on Feb. 21st we drove into the City for a Temple trip with our Young Single Adult Branch of the Church.  It was our first time driving in the City on our mission.  It's fun to see all the things but public transportation is less stressful!

We went over the Queensborough Bridge, also called the 59th Street bridge.

This a view of the East River from the bridge.

Just looking at the buildings and the traffic!
Here are most of the people who attended.

The next Wednesday, the 25th, after our day at the Temple we decided to walk a different route.  First stop, Central Park!

We walked down 5th Avenue.  This is St. Patrick's Cathedral!  It is beautiful!

We saw Rockefeller Center and the famous ice rink.

This is for our son, Adam.  There's a Lego store right by the ice rink and this is the area we were standing in, all built in Legos!

On Thursday, the 26th, we had some fun visitors, Art and Gene Bushman (Sorry, this is us in the picture!)!! We went to the Copenhagen Bakery that their son, Eric, had told us about.  They had wonderful pastries and bread!!

The next day we went to the American Aviation Museum which is close to where we live.  I really enjoyed learning about all the planes that were built through the years.  This was where many planes were made in years past.

Elder Bushman had to try his hand at being a pilot!

Elder Art Bushman was a gunner!

Before they left on Saturday we went to Jones Beach.  Here is the secret to having a beautiful beach to yourself, go when it's 18 degrees with the wind blowing!!

I did love hearing the ocean and watching it.

And this is what we're really here for and what happens 5 days a week, Elder Bushman doing what he does best, teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ!


  1. I love seeing all the sights! Dad looks good in the pilots seat and art seems at home in the gunners seat

  2. Also, glad to see there is some missionary work going on there! πŸ˜‡
