Our Trip to Nauvoo

 Our fun roadtrip to Nauvoo.  What did we ever do before tv's in the car??

                           We went to Carthage Jail with MaKell, Adam and my parents the morning after we    arrived.  I am so grateful we were able to experience that.

 Poor Uncle Adam burned his fingers at the Family Center.  Someone tricked him into touching a pan that just came out of the oven. 
 We spent a lot of time at "Pioneer Pasttimes".  Its a fun place for the kids to wash laundry, do pioneer chores, play school, and other fun pioneer kid games. 

 My Dad is a seriously good weaver now.  You need a rug, he's your guy.

My Dad showing us how to make a rope.  He turned it into a jump rope for the girls.
Emma Smith/Joseph Smith/Hyrum Smith graves
 My mom and dad in the Sunset production.  It was so fun to watch them sing and perform.

                      We were in Nauvoo at the same time as Dan's sister Barb's family.  It was so great to see them and spend time with them too.  This is Lacy, Mercedes and Indie above.
There was a lot of fun activities right before the Joseph Smith Pagent started.  Dan gave us a ride on the handcart, the kids played tug-o-war, danced, went to a puppet show, sack races...  Got them all tuckered out so they would be good for the play, and they really were.
