It was time to head for home, but we all wanted just a few more hours in Nauvoo. We decided to visit some of the historic places we'd skimmed over on the first day.
Nauvoo was so beautiful. We'd heard that it had been unbelievably hot for weeks. But this day was perfect. There was a little breeze and I kept having to pinch myself realizing that I was walking down this street in Nauvoo with my children and grandchildren together. It was so great!
We loved the unusual flowers and bugs.
We came to this great little "hands on" area. The kids got to dress up in Nauvoo clothes and have free run of all the implements and equipment that kept Nauvoo houses running.

re was also plenty for the adults to do. We put together some pretty good competitions. I can't remember who the winners were, but I remember Brian was pretty impressive overall.
After a great stilt race (that it looks like maybe Nick might have won) it was on to the hoop run.
Round two was more exciting since everyone had the hang of it now.
Brian loses his crown to Seth. I love that form!
