*Tim & Spence in Nauvoo

~Tim & Spence flew to St. Louis last Thursday, later driving to Nauvoo & Carthage to spend a couple days visiting church sites. They spent most of their time in the Pioneer town of Nauvoo. Back in the pioneer era it actually rivaled Chicago in size & population. It was a thriving Mormon city until the members of the church were ran out, threatened for their lives & the Temple was burned to the ground. Both Tim & I have ancestors who lived there & helped develop Nauvoo. We had the chance to go there this last April together, tour the old homes & attend the restored Nauvoo Temple.
*This time around Tim took Spence & traveled with a group of his family-parents & siblings.
*Spencer had some quality time with cousins, aunts, uncles & Grandma Debbie & Grandpa Lonnie. I hear he kept everyone entertained by randomly picking up ants and eating them. :?
*He said his favorite part of the trip was walking through the pioneer graveyard & also seeing the jail room that
Joseph Smith & his brother died in. Spencer said he felt the "Holy Ghost" there & he got goosebumps. I'm glad the boys were able to go and spend some quality time together and with family.
