It's a Beautiful Day in Their Neighborhood
And where is their neighborhood? It's a hop, skip and a jump from here...well, specifically about three hours away, near Galena, Illinois! Wes and I had a wonderful weekend visiting my sister and her husband. A highlight of our trip was exploring this old, historic city and taking a trolley tour (why can't I think about trollies without thinking about the beloved Mr. Rogers?) We saw Ulysses S. Grant's home, noted all the different types of architecture, ate great food (I tried my first fried green tomatoes and they were heavenly) and even went to a one-man show performed by Mark Twain impersonator, Jim Post. Great times were had by all! **NOTE: I aplogize for any vertigo you might experience viewing the buildings in this slide show. Pics were quickly snapped while in a moving trolley.
