Today we spent in a restored 1840's town called Historic Nauvoo, in Nauvoo, Illinois run by the LDS church. The kids got to learn about making candles (we got to take some home!), clothes, bread, rugs, lots of other things! We made our own rope (we got to keep!), learned about barrels and wheels, watched a blacksmith make a horseshoe (which we got to keep), and leaned how the bricks for the city were made (we got one of those too!). We also learned about the people who built and lived in the town. Very interestering and interactive.
We also got to see the Restored Nauvoo Temple, and here is the beautiful building. I hope you all had a wonderful mothers day too!
