My Heart’s Home…..

I just got back from my trip to Illinois!! 🙂 I had SO MUCH FUN, and it was such a blessing to see my friends again…..

I cannot describe how much fun I had hanging out with Paige, Ember, and Shannon (and, of course, the 6 kids)!!

Right before I arrived they had the “Great Flood” of 2013, so there was a ton of flooding all around Lacon, Sparland, Chillicothe, and Peoria. My trip was “centered” around the Illinois River and the Lacon Bridge.

I took so many pictures, I’ll have to create 2 posts for this trip….

I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking…..

On Saturday I went to Culver’s and the Bloomington Zoo with Tyler, Shannon, and their kids…

On Sunday I got to go to church at CCC (YAY!!!)….thank you, thank you, thank you to Bob, Rusty, Jacob, and the praise team for a wonderful service. On Sunday night I spent the night with my sweet friend, Paige. I miss her so much!!
