For breakfast we had a homemade omelet, oranges and muffins...delicious!! At about 9:45 we were on our way to Nauvoo. Terrill and I have been reading a book about Joseph smith to get a little more acquainted with the history at the time of Nauvoo. I feel like this helped us to really enjoy the experience today.
Activities in Nauvoo included:
- Exploring the visitors center
- Doing a session in the Nauvoo temple
- Visiting Wilford Woodruff and Brigham Young's home
- Visiting one of my ancesctors homes
- Going to the Joseph Smith Mansion house and cemetery
Seriously, we got stuck behind this tractor!! Haha!
Joseph Smith Home
This is my great, great, great, great Grandfathers home...Lauren FarrIt was such a great day and we really enjoyed it together. It makes you have a greater appreciation for the early saints and all they had to endure!
Now we are in Chicago. Terrill has been on a project here for a few weeks so it has been fun to hear about where he works and what his daily routine is. We are staying on the 30th floor in the city. Tomorrow we plan on running to Navy Pier and Millennium Park.
Tomorrow we will be on our way to Kirtland, OH and then onto Niagara Falls, NY!!
