Church History Trip

I've created a blog to see all my photos from the trip and those of you who would like copies are welcome to download them right from that site. www.nauvoobyemilie.blogspot.com. Enjoy!!!

I went on the Raddest trip with my ward this past weekend to see all the Midwest church sights. We saw a whole lot in 5 days. We flew into Kansas City Wednesday eve we toured all over and flew home on Monday eve. If someone was forcing me to pick my 3 favorite things about the trip they would be... (in no particular order) 1. The country side was breathtaking. The Midwest had way 2 much rain this summer and the result was the greenest country side I have ever seen. Stunning!! 2. Eric surprising me in Carthidge. He's working out in Missouri and was going to drive up to meet me. He called and said he didn't think he would make it until 2am ish on Friday then he showed up at the restaurant in Carthidge where we were eating dinner - I nearly passed out with excitement. He's such a sneaky little sucker!! 3. All the different little creatures I saw. I am such an animal lover. I saw so many unique looking birds, a bunny just came right up to me, lots of white tail deer, butterflies a plenty, a possum or 2 and way too many bugs. Alright and the very close runner up is the late nights with my hysterical roomies!! Thanks girls you made the trip a hoot!!



One of our first stops was Adam-ondi-ahman. What a peaceful place. Imagine that 3 trees growing out in the middle of the valley.



Here's some of those birds I was talking about. This was taken on the temple grounds. Just behind this pair of birds is the Mississippi river. Two little birds sit'n in a tree k.i.s.s.i.n.g!!







Andrea, Rebecca & Betsy - the 3 reason my stomach and back hurt from laughing so much!! No need to sleep if all your going to do is laugh all day!!




I learned something new at the Old Nauvoo city. We visited the printing press shop. They explained that when they put in the type the most frequent mistake was transposing the P's & Q's. So they would say, "watch your P's & Q's". Interesting!! I think it's quite appropriate that Rebecca is holding them - not that I'm hinting at anything!! :)

Please feel free to right click and copy or drag & drop these photos. I will have additional photos posted by the beginning of next week on www.nauvoobyemilie.blogspot.com
