Nauvoo, IL

We've been there three times since moving out here to Iowa. Most recently we went on the 6th of August with our ward to the Temple. This time we had a few different special experiances. I love taking the two hour drive down there. I didn't think I'd like it out here all that much, but I have to admit the rolling grren hills, corn fields, and the drive along the river are really pretty.

Historic Nauvoo itself is a sight to see. There are a bunch of old shops, cafe's, historical sites, and of course the Temple.

Isn't it beautiful?

After a wonderful session we went across the street to this awesome little shop for some lunch. It was so delicious and I can't think of the name but its on the corner just across the street. I got a turkey-cranberry-apple sandwich and Justin got a turkey bacon club. They were both great and I can't wait for the next time we go to get another one!

I drove the four hour round trip this time so Justin could study for one of his five upcoming tests. We decided to stop a little over half way at a small frozen yogurt shop and then got back on the road. As we were driving along I noticed a cop drive by us on the other side of the road. So I checked my speed and made sure I was only going about five over, naturally. Then about five minutes later I look in my rearview mirror and guess who's there? The policeman. I didn't know what to do and not thinking asked "What do I do? Should I pull over?" Justin laughing at me answered, "yes, of course you should pull over." The policeman was nice and right off the bat said it was a warning but the reson he noticed us is that we dont have a license place on the front of our car. In Iowa its required to put plates on the front and back. He also said I was going a little fast (oops). So you could say that scared me a little and the rest of the way home I definitely went the speed limit! So we have to figure out how to get a plate on the damaged front and I'm always on the lookout for those sneaky men.
