Our Family Weekend

I would like to start by pointing out that this is my 300th post! Ok, moving on....we had a wonderful weekend with Eric's family. Eli had been visiting since Wednesday, so you can imagine how excited we were to see him Friday night!

Since it was a beautiful fall weekend, we took advantage and went hiking in Illinois at a place called Garden of the Gods, but first we had a yummy lunch at Just A Burger which is an amazing hometown burger joint in Marion.

Here are me and Eli with my mother-in-law when we first started the trail.


Me and hubby atop a bluff!


Breathtaking views!


The whole time we were walking on rocky bluffs, and Eli kept wanting to throw the rocks (aka bolders) haha! I did let him through a few pebbles over to keep him happy!


Here is grandad and his boys!


This picture is worth a thousand words!



Nan also got to pose with her boys before we left!


I think Eli's favorite part of the whole day was riding the ferry. He was asleep and missed it going to IL, but coming home he was enthralled. Just look at this face!



Love. This. Boy! We spent the rest of the afternoon riding four-wheelers, playing outside, and eating some amazing food.



This is a view of Eric's family farm. Isn't he so blessed to have grown up with this landscape? I feel blessed just having spent the weekend there.
