Hello! So this is only my second attempt at blogging... we will see how it goes. JD just told me that if I am going to blog I have to be funny... because all bloggers are funny. So with that, I will do my best. (Kelsi, I could sure use some pointers oh queen of funny blog posts. :)
We went to Nauvoo with some good friends from the ward, Meghan, Bryce and Dax and it was basically amazing. Luckily it wasn't too hot. We were also there in time to see the Nauvoo Pageant which was incredible! Along with alot of other show put on by the young performing missionaries including: High Hopes and River Boats, Just plain Anna-Amanda, Nauvoo Pageant and Summer by the Mississippi...spelling??
It was great! Our hotel though was another story.. Just give us a ring if you want to know any details... We could go on for awhile. It was quite fun actually!
But Nauvoo is such an amazing place and it has a great spirit there. JD kept on saying that he wants to live there some day. We visited the homes of apostles and prophets, and my favorite part of each home was when the missionaries would bare their testimonies.. I have to say that my personal testimony of the prophet Joseph Smith was incredibly strengthened and I am so grateful for that. I am also very grateful for all that the saints went through to keep the gospel alive...it absolutely amazes me.
It was such a great experience and I can't wait to go back someday.. here are some pictures from the trip. :)
