Grover Family Vacation: Mormon Battalion

When it comes to honoring the Sabbath while on vacation, we try our best to avoid purchasing things or eating out, but do give ourselves a little wiggle room to enjoy our family time. When we discussed our plans for Sunday with the kids, Hank immediately expressed his concern about breaking the Sabbath and was very unwilling to participate. I very much appreciate and respect Hank's commitment to honor the Sabbath, so we explained that visiting the Mormon Battalion Museum and learning about the early pioneers would be a good activity to do on Sunday. After a little family devotional in our hotel room, we learned about the service, sacrifice, and faith of the 500 Mormon Battalion members. We didn't physically attend church, but I felt like our cups were filled.
