Last Few Days in Nauvoo

A lot of time has passed since I got back from Nauvoo, I can still remember everything really well and I hope I continue to forever! I finally got some pictures printed as well. I prefer having printouts instead of just seeing them on screen.

As you know, some family members turned up in Nauvoo to visit me. It was fantastic to be able to show them everything I’d seen and introduce them to all my friends. Over the week, we were able to spend plenty of time together and even managed to slip in a visit of Arbys. I think it was four years since I’d had some curly fries. It was well worth the 30 miles we traveled to get there! I forgot to mention that on the first day my family arrived, the work crew had a temple session booked around lunchtime. It was really great because my family members were able to join us in the Temple. It was a very special and enjoyable experience.

Here's a picture of me with my Dad and sister. I look quite funny on it because I was trying not to blink or smile excessively and ended up with a mixture of both. The sun was so intensely bright and I didn't have my sunglasses with me so I was being blinded while trying to keep a straight face and make a decent picture.

My family and I were able to spend lots of time together thanks to my fellow crew members and crew leaders. The time then came for goodbyes. It was quite hard even though I would be following them home in a few days time. I am so grateful for their visit, now someone else will know what I’m talking about. Stories, pictures and video clips are great for telling someone about something but they’re nothing compared to the real thing – especially when talking about Nauvoo.

Well, there we have it – my last post on my trip to Nauvoo (unless I remember any major events that I want to fill in). I’ll now update you with some current things!
