Nauvoo or Bust

We never made it Nauvoo.

Lots of things happened to prevent our trip from happening.

We knew our Mormon Assault Vehicle would be in the shop for much needed repairs. We could not drive it East the way it was and it would not be done in time to take it. She we figured we'd take the car and let one of the heathens ride with Grandpa or Aunt Lisa or Uncle Steve, all of whom were planning on caravanning with us.

Then, Lisa's vehicle was having problems. They were panning on buying a new car in the near future and decided to go ahead and do it before the trip. That fell through at the last minute and they were also without a reliable ride. Still, we decided to push and shove in different vehicles. We were determined to make this trip happen.

Then, the straw that broke the camel's back. The day before we were to leave Steve's water line to his house broke.

We all determined we just were not meant to go on this trip. So we bagged it.

But not totally.

All the guys had taken a week off work and we did not want to waste all that glorious time off. We decided that instead of going to Nauvoo we would spend Saturday fixing Steve's water line, then we would go on a fun horse ride in the evening. After the horse ride we all came back to our house for pizza and games. We has so much fun just being together. Sunday we all went to church for Mother's day, then we met at our house to plan the rest of the week.

This slide show is of our "Nauvoo Trip" Day 1

I'll post day 2 a little later. We did end up going out of town, more details on that in the next edition of...

Nauvoo or BUST!
