Fun in the Mid-West

Well, here we are in the Mid-West. Flew into Kansas City and then drove up to my favorite place in the whole world, Nauvoo. On the way, we stopped in Hannibal, MO to have a stretch and some food. This is the home of Mark Twain.

The mighty Mississippi from the Missouri side.

The Mark Twain Memorial Bridge Monument....

The restaurant we ate at. This was interesting. The food marginal, but the people are so nice. We asked the waitress if there was a Wal-mart because we needed to buy better maps. She said...It's not just a Wal-mart, but it's a SUPER Wal-mart. My husband and I have joked about this the whole trip.

The beautiful temple in Nauvoo.

A covered wagon similar to the type used when the people were driven from their homes to the Great Salt Lake Valley.

The Nauvoo star. I ordered this pattern for my memory. The store was out. I was sad.

Handsome husband standing next to Uncle Sam in the charming quilt store, Sew Inspired Quilts, in Nauvoo, IL.

The mighty Mississippi on the Illinois side. This is where the people began their
Exodus out West.

Now that we are in Kansas, I will try to find Dorothy and avoid tornadoes and attend a family reunion......

Wow, that brings back a flood of memories from last year when we were walking in the very same places that you are. What a delightful and inspiring part of the country Nauvoo is....

Yay! It looks like you're having a great time! I want to travel out there again.

I love Nauvoo. I've been there several times and love it each time we go.

I've never been to Nauvoo, but that should probably be our next road trip, we aren't that far! And I LOVE your nine patch reunion quilt, its beautiful! Thanks for stopping by and linking! -Allison
