We had a wonderful time in Illinois. Anthony ran in the Chicago 10.10.10. marathon. It was almost exactly a year ago that we visited Chicago for the first time. Ethan’s birthday was coming up so we celebrated all week long. We took the boys to Legoland, they had so much fun.
After Chicago we went to Nauvoo. It’s hard to believe the last time we came to Nauvoo was on our move East, eight years ago. This is a beautiful time of year to come, the weather was perfect and there weren’t any crowds. The boys enjoyed the oxen and carriage ride and we all enjoyed the evening show. The Nauvoo temple is so beautiful, and the view is absolutely amazing. I took several pictures of the temple, feel free to download them for personal use.
