|Me and Ragnar with Grandma!|
|"Everybody look this way and smile!"|
"I'm going for my Serious Look, Mags."
"Me, too, Raggi. So's the Mascoutah Indian!"
|"Cool! Check it out, Ragnar!"|
"Get a shot of us by this, Mom!"
They have a few murals around town -- we liked this one, too:
|"Very historical, huh, Mags."|
"Yeah! Wow, would I love to explore that building!"
That building is the original mill for the town!
One evening, we walked down to our aunt and uncle's house to see them. On the way home, we discovered this:
|"Gadzooks! Get a load of the size of that kit-cat, Ragnar!"|
"Should we do anything about that, Mags?"
I assured Ragnar that even though it was moving, we could take it, so no worries. We just stared, then walked on by.
On another evening, we discovered something called "take-out" at a Mexican restaurant in town!
Sadly, we did not get to eat the food there. Maybe next time.
|"Hey, Dad! Grab me a couple tacos while you're in there!"|
"I'll take some chick-hen enchiladas, please!"
On one of our morning walks, we made an awesome discovery:
|"Check it out, everybody!!!"|
"It's the Illinois Ocean!!!"
We thought it was pretty cool -- some people may not have even known it was there!
It was a great week, but before we knew it, it was time to head back home!
Having said that, it's so good to be home! Thanks for reading!
