Nauvoo day 2

In the afternoon we went back to Nauvoo and saw some more of the city. Really we could have spent a week, there were many things we didn't get to. We just decided to see what we could and enjoy it.
The kids all loved pioneer past times.

In the evening we enjoyed the pageant and the festivities so much. We played games and danced and had a pioneering good time! I can't believe how well done the whole thing was and how much fun we all had.

The kids cut wood, stick pulled, walked on stilts, played stick ball and tug of war and many other fun things.

The pageant was extraordinary. I would love to come back every year. I am so grateful for the rest0red gospel and the sacrifices of the pioneers who paved the way and suffered great adversity so that we could enjoy the fullness of the gospel and the freedoms of worshiping the Lord. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, that the Book of Mormon is true, that families can be together forever and that we are lead by a Prophet today. I look forward to the second coming of the Savior and living with my Heavenly Father again.
Tonight I am grateful for the wonderful time we have had learning more and experiencing more and spending time together.

That dancing picture of the little's is soooo cute , GO Emma:) I know the Pageant is different now, when we saw it it was City of Joseph I understand it is more serious I so want to see it. I love that temple too, and so enjoyed reading your testimony, that will touch your Momma's heart too:) What wonderful memories you are making.

It is such a wonderful place to visit. I have never seen the Pageant--maybe one day we'll get back and see it.

Love all the pictures and especially enjoyed reading your testimony. Thank you for sharing it.
