Nauvoo was Cool!

For spring break this year, we went to Nauvoo. Yes, I know we were probably the only people in the state of Michigan who didn't go to Florida, but we still had fun. Actually, I don't even know what Florida is!! The most exciting part was that when we got to our hotel Grandma and Pa were there waiting for us!!! We got to do lots of fun things in Nauvoo. We took lots of wagon rides, got to make things, and eat gingerbread cookies. (and Kaiden didn't want his, so I got to eat it!!) We saw this movie, that was so sad I started bawling for a long time at the end. That was probably my least favorite part!! We were sad when we had to go, because we wanted to stay longer. However, we got to go to Nana and Granddad's house, so it was OK to leave Nauvoo.

My mommy sings "I Love to See the Temple" to me almost every night before I go to bed, so I was excited to finally see a real temple!!

We rode in this wagon and big cows called ox pulled us. Daddy said that the pioneers traveled all the way to Utah in a wagon like this!! I don't know where Utah is, but if it is far away it would not be fun!!! It was really bumpy and I thought I was going to fall out!!
