We were oh so lucky to have one of my best-friends from college, Megan, make a 6-hour round-trip drive to spend a few hours with us. She and her husband and her adorable kids came and we walked the little path of "Trail of Hope" in Historic Nauvoo (the trail was what the early Saints walked down as they left their beautiful town of Nauvoo and crossed the Mississippi river on their way out west). It was a great time (but I should have gotten more pictures of our friends!).

Cuties - Emmy and Jack.

We made it to the river, where lots of throwing of rocks and sticks were enjoyed by all the kiddos.

What a neat spot.

They did a little "fishing" too. Too bad cute Ellie's face was covered.

Not the best of picture but I had to show my friends - Megan and her husband Greg. Oh yeah, and check out that ever-expanding belly of mine.

Covered wagon - similar to what the pioneers would have crossed the Mississippi river with.

what did the kids think of a river that big? did they even understand it was a river and not a lake?
