Man I have to say that I just LOVE Nauvoo! I love the feeling there. It just makes you feel so good and everything is just so peaceful! I decided to take kid pics while we were there to see the Pagent. I totally love how they turned out!
(well most of them! hehe! I really would have rather gotten a nice smile out of Dylan and Lacey instead of a nice wide open mouth shot but they were all having so much fun being silly!)
Usually I will pose a couple pics and then just let them do whatever while I snap away. That is usually where I get the really good moments captured!
While Abby, Dylan and Lace messed around Colby was really really interested in the grass.
Bryan has that nice pioneer lineage and is related to couple people who lived in Nauvoo including John Taylor so we took a pic in front of his house for Bryan's Grandparents.
Standing on a random wagon-fun times.
Soaking in some sun and beautiful flowers in the Relief Society Garden!
We spent some time down by the river where the Pioneers crossed. The kids spent most of the time seeing how many rocks they could throw in the river.
Man those wagons were small!
Before the Pageant starts they hold a little Country Fair with all kinds of games and crafts. It is pretty amazing and the kids just loved it! Bryan even pulled them in a handcart, which they thought was pretty fun!
The kids really enjoyed the pageant and wanted to go back down this past weekend! It would have been so much fun to go down again! The Pageant was wonderful and I always leave with so much peace. It was a perfect last big summer trip to do with the kids. I think it might have to become a yearly thing!
