Carthage, IL

Happy MLK Day! To celebrate Tim's day off of school we took a little overnight trip down to Nauvoo.  With the long drive and taking turns watching Kate we never seem to have enough time to see all the historic sites when we go to Nauvoo for our monthly visit to the temple. We've especially been wanting to go to Carthage and finally made it. Carthage Jail is where the Prophet Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum were martyred in 1844. It was a wonderful opportunity to reflect upon his life and strengthen our testimonies.
