Winter Quarters

We had one more perfectly perfect day in Nauvoo. Truly. I basked in the temple. The kids journaled at the temple. We went to vignettes with the Brooks and saw shows together and enjoyed the pageant from the front row one last time. It was with heavy hearts that we left Nauvoo. All of the kids were so sad- we mourned the loss of that closeness with our ancestors and that temple like feel all throughout the city. We nearly cried as we left the temple and could only imagine our ancestors doing the same! So hard! We turned West and headed across Iowa to Winter Quarters. The museum there was so fun for the kids and our sister missionary was so attentive. Drew loved the temple and we all loved the temple site. Westward Ho! On to Sioux Falls!
