Nauvoo trip movie
We loved our time in Nauvoo!! We enjoyed all the shows, the carriage and wagon rides, the ox cart ride, and the visitors center. The weather was perfect the whole time we were there. About 80 degrees each day. We loved walking the Trail of Hope. President Hinckley encouraged the members to do this when they went to Nauvoo. Reading the plaques was very inspiring. Putting our feet in the Mississippi River was fun. We watched Vocal Point each night. Matthew loved them, especially the song "Thriller".
Going to the temple was a spiritual experience for the girls and us. It was amazing to hear the stories of what the Saints left behind. The view of the Temple on the hill as the Saints crossed the Mississippi was inspiring.
Nauvoo was an amazing experience for out family.
