Hill Cumorah Pageant 2019

Last week, and the week before, was the Hill Cumorah Pageant

I grew up in the east USA and we went almost every summer to see this amazing outdoor performance. Many of my brothers were on the work crews over the years, one was a cast member before his mission.

This summer, my parents were in the pageant, as well as one of my brothers. This same brother is also the stage fighting coordinator (and he was last year as well—and will be for next year!)

My mom was Ishmael’s wife, my dad was in the crowd throwing stones at Samuel the Lamanite. I forget what my brother’s role was. But—don’t they look cool?!

(My dad grew out his facial hair—we rarely saw him with any facial hair growing up—just a couple of pictures with a moustache).

(My brother and his family came from
Ohio to attend!)

Next summer (2020) will be the final year of the Hill Cumorah Pageant. I hope to be able to take my own family to see this same grand event that I have such fond childhood memories of.

Two of my kids went to EFY last week. My home was down to three kids and none of us liked it very much! Too lonely!

It is sad for me to be on the other side of the parenting hill—that my kids are leaving the nest....The time really does go by fast!

Here are a few pictures of my big kids at EFY:

It’s already July!

Summer’s marching along! 4th of July was low-key. Didn’t feel like keeping the little kids up for fireworks so we didn’t watch any this year. Traveling next month to a state where we can shoot off our own—yippee!!

So—just some photos of summer...
