Galena, Illinois


He, and our good friend Drew, planned a surprise weekend for their wives, April and myself, to Galena, Illinois. We enjoyed 2 days of shopping, eating and fellowship. I am so grateful to be blessed with such a thoughtful husband (and friends:)).

Look! Here we are entering the state of Illinois:)

This is the hotel that we stayed at. It was built in 1855 and welcomed some very famous people like presidents Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant.

Since the Midwest was still experiencing subzero temperatures on that Friday, we took a little trip (within our trip) to Iowa to go see a movie that day.

Enjoying a "nail biting" game of Pictionary.

Who is this crazy man?

It was a great 2 days! The guys think the wives should plan a weekend for them now:). We're going to work on it.
