Yoo-hoo, ladies! Ever thought about being sister wives?
Howdy, Gasmii! Hey, did any of you know that Christmas falls on December 25 this year? If only someone had told me! You’d think the news media would be all over that story! But no. Let me just say that Christmas dinner will consist of a quarter sleeve of saltines, some beef sticks, and instant coffee. And as for presents? I’m actually in better shape there, thanks to my neighbors who apparently left town before Friday’s last UPS delivery. Huzzah!
Here’s your Christmas present from me, a bright shiny new recap! Enjoy!
We open at Logan’s birthday. There’s great angst because, you might have heard, he’s going away to college. In Nevada. In Las Vegas. He’ll be right across town, people!
I was wise to pick UNLV.
Because Kody can’t let any member of his family – besides himself, of course – have even a tiny speck of the spotlight, he uses Logan’s party to announce they’re all going to Nauvoo. They’re going to rent 2 RVs and make the trip in 3 days. It’s 1,626 miles. 3 days! HAHAHAHAHAHAH
Aspyn immediately asks if the teens can go to California instead. Keep it up, missy, and you’ll be going somewhere else all right.
Reform school. And knock off the damned crying.
Kody explains that Nauvoo is “like going to Jerusalem”.
Um, no. PS – You’re breaking at least 1 commandment.
Nauvoo is where Joseph Smith
was inspired by God to institute made up the principle of plural marriage, which ultimately led to Smith’s death. Kody soberly tells us he’s a polygamist because of Joseph Smith’s testimony. He also says something about although the “branches” of Mormonism tried to separate, they’re the same church. That’ll come as a surprise to the LDS!
The adults discuss the trip, and Meri says it “gives me stress”, and they need to stick to the 3-day timetable. Who do you think you’re traveling with, the Dargers? Christine echoes it sounds like a lot of stress. We learn that Hunter and Logan aren’t coming on the trip, they have some sort of football camp. Robyn is bringing her sister, Tara.
They’re off! And first stop is Utah, where we’re reminded yet again by Kody that it’s “safe” for him to be there. They meet with Chris Bloxham, who owns Hyrum Smith’s homestead in Nauvoo. (Hyrum was Joseph Smith’s brother). Bloxham shows them a painting and letter from Brigham Young, which leads Kody to remark he, Kody, looks like Young. According to this site, Kody should look like Young – he’s Brigham Young’s great-great-great grandnephew. The wives don’t think Brigham Young is very attractive – except Robyn. Cause if she says Brigham is cute, and Kody looks like Brigham – bingo, Kody is cute too! Points for Robyn.
