We were ignoring the warning and danger signs on the tractor :)
The tires were gigantic! Haha!
My sisters and I.
The kids plus Laura
The three amigos!
Once we were done looking at all the tractors and taking the pictures that we wanted, we went into the store and I bought the John Deere Jenga game. It is just like normal Jenga, only to figure out who is going to set the tower up has to make the best tractor sound and the person who makes the tower fall has to make barn animal noises while the tower is being set up again! And it has a dice that you role to tell you what color of block you have to remove. It is really fun! Here we are playing it back at the hotel!
These pictures are of us waiting to watch the show Sunset on the Mississippi, which consisted of lots of talent and jokes and laughter. We laughed through the entire show but before we were bored so we got some awesome pictures of the family! Needless to say, we had a good time!Yes this is what I had to deal with the entire trip....
This is where we all get our good looks from. Just keep scrolling down. It gets pretty good! Welcome to the Ferrin family! :) In all it's glory!We did baptisms for the dead.
We got a little bored on the way....
Open Mouth Smiles!
Then we were there.
This is in the pantry that Brigham Young built outside.
Behind the statue in front of the temple. I love this picture because even though Joseph and Hyrum weren't able to see the temple finished, they were looking forward to it being finished and receiving the blessing that come from the temple.
In front of a statue that was by a store.
Me and my family in front of the Nauvoo Temple before we left.
And then with Laura
That was our trip in Nauvoo in a nutshell. We had a ton of fun and it was a great trip. We didn't want to leave because there is such a peaceful feeling there. It's a great place to visit and I can't wait until the next time I am able to go!
