Nauvoo is a beautiful place. And the "historic" part of it is so nice and quaint and adorable. We didn't do all of the sites there, but enough for the kids (and myself). Ben could have done it all, twice. We really did have a great time touring the area; it's such a neat, neat area.
We took a wagon-ride that showed us all around historic Nauvoo. The next day we took a carriage ride through the country-side and that was really neat, too.
One of the kids' favorite places in historic Nauvoo was the "Pioneer Pastimes" area. Here there were games, toys, etc. that the pioneer children would have enjoyed and played with. My kids loved it all!
Oh I love this picture. This was some acrobatic monkey thing. It was pretty awesome. You squeezed the bottom sticks together and the monkey flips and such.
Oh this was another favorite - the climbing bear. All my kids just loved, loved doing this. You hold the ropes tight and the bear climbs all the way to the top. So great.
Emmy learned that being a pioneer and pushing a wheelbarrow was hard work, too. Not just all play. :) Whoa girl.
