Memorial Day Weekend

We packed in every activity we could find!! On Sunday we went to Colona (a nearby IL town) for a parade. We weren't too sure what we would find, but it was really nice! Hallie got a ton of candy and it lasted over an hour! I would recommend it to everyone for next year! Sunday night we had a little BBQ and ate outside. We finished up the night playing croquet and going for a walk! On Monday we were BUSY! First, we went to Long Grove (a small Iowa town) for Heritage days. They had a petting zoo and pony rides! They had all kinds of animals! Hallie asked them to take them all out of the cages so she could pet them. (snakes, hedgehogs, rats, spiders, all sorts!) Then on our way back to IL we stopped off at Kim's to say hi and get some paper (for that darn Pickle contest). In Rock Island on Wednesday and Sunday nights at 6:30 (we caught the special show on Memorial Day) the waterski team has a show. It was really fun to watch. Again, I would recommend this-- Do I sound like the QC Tour Guide or what??? Again, we ended the evening with a BBQ. Who stops celebrating on Monday, we went on through Tuesday with a trip to "Hallie's Zoo"-- as she calls it. Now we are packing up to head over to see Aunt Jess in Iowa City and get some stuff from Grandma Carmel's house in Des Moines. We'll be back in a few days :)

2 friends had to say...:

Maybe next year we'll have to venture all the way down your way! It looks like you guys had a lot of fun! I'm really impressed with Hallie and the spider - I'm shivering just thinking about it!
