Nice trip to IL

We had a nice trip to IL on saturday. It was just the kids, my dad and myself. We went to my sweet cousin Peggy's memorial service. What a beautiful service it was too. You could feel how much she was loved and how much she will be missed.

After that, we went to the luncheon at the church.
Went to the cemetery. It was pretty muddy and washed out, so we didn't stay long.

After that, we went to show Morgan where I used to live when I was 10. That place looks so different. I almost cried. Our's was 2nd door from left.

Then we hit the Lewis & Clark Expedition site in Granite City, IL. I have pics of Mom sitting on this huge rock from 1988. I don't know why I've never been down there before now. But we did it. And I have to say, I don't know HOW she got up there. lol. We don't have that kind of energy or desire, so we just stood beside it while my dad took the pic. (Orin was asleep in the car. Wish he could've been in the pic. Next time....)

Then we headed home, but not before stopping at Jack-in-the-Box in Sullivan, MO. lol Gotta get those tacos!

I have a new nephew....and a couple of great kids.

So this is my newest nephew Caleb. He was born on Friday evening (the 5th). He's just so stinkin' adorable. And I get to see him again tonight. :-D

And here are some new pics of my kids.
