Kentucky to Nauvoo

...then we drove up to Nauvoo.


Nauvoo is a church history site as this was a huge gathering place for LDS people before they headed west to Utah. My family loves history and my Dad was so excited that Devin is a convert because that means we have a great excuse to go to all of the church history sites again.

We had a wonderful time touring and my Dad completely devastated us at Monopoly.

Devin and I in front of the Nauvoo, Illinois LDS temple. After the pioneers spent everything they had- time and money they were forced to leave it all behind. When I was in middle school they re-built an exact replica of the beautiful temple.

Devin and my Dad doing what they do best- laugh.

My cute parents.
