President Lincoln had a vision to make a interstate highway from east to west and so he was honored at this spot. It was a really big monument.
We stopped at Winter Quarters, Nebraska and spent some time in the visitor's center. We met a very nice sister missionary. I can't remember her name. She let me pull a handcart. She was from West Jordan, UT, right near where Jess lives.
On Saturday we went to Nauvoo, IL. I got to cross the Mississippi. It was a very big river! One fun place in Nauvoo is where they have pioneer games. I liked making the man flip over with the toy above.
It was pretty hot at Nauvoo, but it was a nice day. The temple is pretty.
Here I am near the steps of the Nauvoo Temple with my niece and nephews. They are Jared (the tall one), Brenden, Alyssa and Scott.
