Mark Twain and The Mississippi

Brett and I went to Missouri for the last week in July and had so much fun! I love the time we get to spend with family. Scroll down to see the fun things that we did.

On our way to Nauvoo we stopped in Hannibal, MO to see the place where Mark Twain grew up. For those of you who don't know or forget, Mark Twain is the author of the famous novels, 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn', and 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer'.
