Bobby's mom took us all to Nauvoo to spend the night on Monday and see some of the sites. We had a great time, despite our children's efforts to ruin it for us. That sounds pretty harsh, but they did seem to be alternately naughty the whole 24 hours we were there. Luckily, Bobby and I each got a little break from the kids. I got to the temple with Molly Tuesday morning- we just barely made it... the temple workers were so nice to wait a few extra minutes so we could get into the 9 AM session! (Bobby stayed home with Franny since she was having a hard morning and we didn't want to leave Louise with all the kids by herself.) That afternoon we went to Carthage and Bobby took most of the tour by himself. He had really been looking forward to it and Sophie was needing a nap and couldn't make it through. I ended up taking both kids outside. That kind of vacation is difficult with small children. While we live out here, we really want to see Chicago. I think we're both afraid it will be pointless trying to go there and see the things we want to- like art museums and Frank Lloyd Wright architecture- with Franny and Sophie in tow.
Here's a few pictures from our trip.
