What's that you say? You'd like some pictures? How about this:
|Yes, Joe got to play, too. He's a country boy at heart!|
|These guys have been friends since elementary school!|
The weekend was filled with highlights of small town living. Some were comical, others just relaxing and enjoyable. We looked at the stars, ate down home cooking, and paid a visit to Walmart (where we bought craft beer and nothing else). It was great to reconnect with old friends, and to enjoy a little time away from the big city!
|I hope this isn't their only fire truck!|
|Enjoying some Boone's Farm "Fuzzy Navel" in the parking lot. |
Not just any parking lot, either. It was the 4H parking lot.
Surrounded by corn on all sides.
|Serious small town breakfast.|
|In case you were wondering where all the crazy Tea Party folks are, |
the answer is small towns in Illinois. Yikes.
|I got to reconnect with my good friend Michelle. I miss this girl!|
|We squeezed in a visit to Flat Branch, |
a favorite watering hole during our college days in Columbia.
It was a great weekend away from the city, catching up with good friends over a cold beer (or five). Thanks to everyone who made it such a fun visit!
