The Nauvoo Temple

The temple at Nauvoo is probably one of the most beautiful temples we've seen and been in. It is absolutely amazing. It has this spiral staircase that is about 6-7 stories high and is just so neat to look down upon and up at. The rooms are all beautiful. When you do an endowment session you go into four different rooms - all beautiful. Beautiful, get it?

I'm pretty lame and don't have any pictures of the bride and groom. Jim, Ben's dad, took great pictures and maybe someday I'll get them. But we did get quite a few shots of the kiddos on the temple grounds:

Miles looking wonderfully handsome.

Oh how sweet.

The 2 brothers standing in front of "The Last Ride" statues of Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum - as they ride away from Nauvoo to Carthage, where they would shortly be killed.

Oh I love them. Especially when they look so adorable.

Awesome - as in awe-inspiring. Not as in totally rad. (Whoops, looks like we cut out Angel Moroni.)

Wow, I love it all! Can't wait to go there someday. And take my kids. Aren't you glad your kids travel well? Can't really blame Jonas for his bum hurting after sitting that much!
