Nauvoo

My ancestor, Zera Pulsipher! He baptized Wilford Woodruff (something my dad loved to tell us). Check out D&C 124:136! Or maybe it's 136:124?

He's one of those surly carpenter men.

This was the little cabin we stayed in while in Nauvoo. It was so incredibly cute! We crammed 6 people into that thing and it was actually a very comfortable stay.
A few things about Nauvoo:

  • it is teeny tiny! like, imagine Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls. I always thought it was a thriving Metropolis, the way everyone in the Church knows exactly where/what it is. but nope, itty bitty.
  • all of the food in Nauvoo is delicious. except for the chinese food (but we don't talk about that).
  • there is green green grass everywhere and it looks & feels like paradise. don't be surprised if travis & i up and move to Illinois someday... we totally fell in love.
  • chiggers. apparently they are teeny tiny buggers that eat you if you roll in the grass for hours on end. 
  • travis & i probably have chiggers

HOW CUTE IS THAT CABIN?! I wish we had known about them when we stayed there! It is SO gorgeous, and SO tiny, but I kinda liked the tiny-it was the most peaceful vacation to go there!

You are adorable! Glad you guys had such a fun trip. I'd love to go to Nauvoo one day.

hahah when I went to Navoo the fam and I were playing in these huge fields of wheat or something. Having the best time ever. like 10 minutes later some guy runs up and tells us we can't play in there cause it's full of chiggers. ANd apparently their fave place is to nessle up in your belly button. we were chigger free... this time.

Chiggers are the worst! when I went to girls camp in Texas, a ton of girls got them. I got them on my ankles, as they burrow in hemlines...my sock lines. Itchy ankles are hands down the worse itchy spot ever! My MIL went over the summer and was shocked at how small it was too!

chiggers are the worst. and basically, my only memory of Nauvoo is the strawberry pastry I ate on the way out of town. I love food.

LOVE your outfit! P.s. we went to the St. George temple this morning and the sister missionary told us that the temple was built using the same basic layout as the Nauvoo. Now I see the resemblance!
