Nauvoo

Hehehe... it's been like a month since we were in Nauvoo, but I figure you're probably a little more interested in Korea stuff than our vacation. Still, I blog for more than just you. The kids LOVE looking at the blog and reliving all the fun things we've done.

**just a note. i've been updating the blog a lot, so be sure to scroll down or click on 'older posts' to make sure you've caught everything**

So, after the fun stop at the St. Louis Arch, we went the rest of the way to Nauvoo. When Dan and I talked about where we wanted to go on our road trip, Nauvoo was #1 on my list. We were married in the temple there and hadn't been back. It was almost like coming full circle.

Dan's parents had been in Virginia Beach with us, helping us get all moved out, and met us in Nauvoo to provide a place to stay, babysitters for the temple, and fun company. Marsi, Dan's sister, and her family came from Oklahoma to join in on the fun too.

Dee wanted me to take a picture of Alex napping so in the future he wouldn't wonder where he was in all of the following pictures. It's much easier to walk around Historic Nauvoo without a cranky 2 year old!



Cousins and best friends


Hendi-jo

The whole gang at the Brigham Young house


Kissing cousins!


The blacksmith!


If you look really really close under the yellow flowers that stick out the most, that's not a leaf, it's a tiny hummingbird

Hendi and Cade in front of the Nauvoo temple



Steele and Necie in Carthage Jail

This the door to the room where Joseph and Hyrum Smith were shot and killed. The bullet holes are still in the door




Downtown Nauvoo is full of fun little shops including, fudge, candy and of course ice cream!


A family friend of ours owns a fun zone in Nauvoo, so we thought we'd check it out. We had a blast!


The indoor playground was a hit with the kids

Nana Dee wanted to spoil her grandkids with some Dippin' Dots!




Then it was time for Go-Karts!!






Here's Dan finally passing his mom!




Tight corner!

Poor Alex was the only one too little to participate

Cade said, "Daddy! We won the Piston Cup!"

And of course, no family campout is complete without a camp fire and s'mores!





Papa Jon was collecting bugs on his Jeep


It was great to go back to the place where we were married and bring our 2 kids there. Maybe the next time we come back we'll have 3!
