We are about 5 hours away from Nauvoo according to the GPS that is so that's 4.5 to Mike. But I have to say dead corn field after dead corn field got old really really quickly.
Finally we got there!
We saw a bunch of the sites and loved learning about the printing press, brick making all the different apostles and prophets that lived there. All the sites close at 4:00 and the little senior show didn't start til 7 so what do you do in a freezing cold completely closed out town for a few hours? Find the one open restaurant and stay awhile. It was a cute restaurant very....quirky. We went and saw the little show and we were off to bed. There was even this cute fake burning stove in our place.
The next morning we get into the car to find our water bottle totally frozen-not a good sign. We headed over to the temple to do some sealings. I don't think I have ever met such nice temple workers in my life. They were so kind!
