So,Saturday morning at the crack of dawn we made our way down Wall St. and began our trip with a bang.
After picking myself up off the ground and our car up from Penn Station NJ we hit the road.
Our first stop....
Burger King, Scranton PA!
After lunch we tried to take "The Office" tour of Scranton but we missed the bus.So we had to make our own tour. We found the old train station and Mifflin Ave.
We thought Dunder Mifflin had to be around there somewhere! :) But our search for The Office and the "Scranton Welcomes You" sign was to no avail.
We even stopped in a gas station thinking the citizens of Scranton could lead us in the right direction...we were wrong. No one had any clue what we were talking about. Apparently no one in Scranton watches The Office. I wonder if it is banned from the airwaves there...
From Scranton we made our way to Palmyra. We had a few hours to kill before the Pagent started so went to the Sacred Grove and the Palmyra temple. The peacefulness of these sites is like no where elses. Even in the midst of crowds the spirit can be felt there. It was so nice to take the time to wander and enjoy the beauty and the spirit of these sites.
Even after being at the Sacred Grove and the Temple for a couple of hours we still had time on our hands, so dinner was the next thing on the agenda. After driving around the thriving metroplolis of Palmyra/Manchester, New York we decided to place our bets on Buffalo Bills. It was good meal, fun times and I, I did my daddy proud! :)The pagent was a very fun experience. There were definitely some very cool "special effects" but the best effects were the brilliant stars shining over head.
