Moving Across Country

We are currently in Nauvoo, Illinois. We arrived this afternoon around five. It is so green here. Crossing the Mississippi was fun. It is quite wide. And clear, unlike the Colorado River. As we drove along the river on our way to Nauvoo, I pictured in my mind what it might have been like living here back when our country still hadn't expanded into the west. What is really neat is to walk where our pioneer ancestors had walked. Tomorrow we will tour more of Nauvoo, as we spent the evening preparing dinner and went to a show called "Randevouz in Nauvoo". The kids seem pretty contempt with swimming in the hotel swimming pools each night. In fact, that's all they really care about! I can't wait to to reach Washington, DC. It will be nice to have my own home again. I've been homeless for over a month now, and I'm ready to have my own place again. The car is a mess. I think we plan on running it off a cliff when we finally get to DC. It's that bad. Anyways, here we go!
