We wanted to do something fun or different for our memorial day and though we wanted to set out for an adventure to the Mississippi river after reading the adventures of huck finn together (Joe would read to me while I would feed Lucy in our first 2 months or so with her), we figured it was probably a little far with the girlie.
SO, instead we ventured to the Rock River in Oregon, IL.
It was a fun trip, packed a lunch, ate overlooking the river, Lucy LOVED laying there staring up at the trees. Leaves are her favorite. Well, leaves and ceiling fans :)
The people there were so friendly and being by the river was very relaxing - it was also a beautiful drive. we love the country!
Here are a few photos from our time there:
