So as you all know I have the greatest family EVER!! My mom and dad are serving as Mission Presidents in the Peoria, Illinois mission. Those have to be the luckiest missionaries out there!! They love it and are so super busy. Trav and I got to go visit them back in September when they had time to get settled in (okay I only gave them about a month before I missed them so much I had to go out and see them) We went to Nauvoo with them and got to go through the temple out there. It was amazing. We went to Carthage jail and tour a lot of the sights the pioneers traveled including the huge river. It was insane, truly breathtaking to see it in person and imagine what they went through. It was such an amazing atmosphere everywhere there. We met quite a few of their missionaries from their area at a picnic they were having. They all couldn't stop telling me what awesome parents I have!! (They love to have a mission pres with such a wacky sense of humor) They are so loved out there and are changing so many lives. It still doesn't seem fair that they get to have my parents for 3 years but it doens't look like my say has any toll in the matter so I have learned to deal with it. I plan on going out there as much as possible and taking my dad to da BEARS game!!! (hopefully next season) GO BEARS!!
