After our tour of Carthage, we drove to Nauvoo and checked into The Nauvoo Hotel. We also had a little time to tour the Old Nauvoo cultural hall and the Family living center before meeting Elder and Sister Johnson at the Nauvoo temple.
Before our trip, I had done some research and found several family names that needed the have their temple work done. The trio were able to complete all of their baptisms and confirmations. We all loved being in the Nauvoo Temple and didn't want to leave but we still had so much to do and so little time!
Next, we toured the historic Brick yard. During the tour each family is given a comemorative Nauvoo Brick, but our children recieved something special. They were each given a brick made special for them by Elder and Sister Johnson. Their bricks were personalized with their names and the year we visited stamped on the back. They treasure their bricks and are so thankful for them.
Following our brick yard tour, we walked over to the Pendleton log home and school for a brief "lesson" on the educational system of old Nauvoo.
