We had a great time visiting or at least I did! As usual we drove into Benton and stopped at some of the important sites. Makala, Marty and Travis in front of my Great Grandmother Aileen's house.
On our way into town we stopped and everyone had a great Catfish lunch. The kids were not too happy about it but, that's too bad for them. I honestly believe that once when I was young visiting **Someone** told me I was eating Squirrel? I still don't know but have always hoped it was just one of the fun little jokes family likes to play on little blond California cousins... Catfish is okay but, I must say living in the Pacific Northwest means I am accustom to the best--Salmon... and nothing is as swell as Dungeness Crab... ummmm!
We visited the Black Smith shop of my great great Grandfather and the prints of the horseshoes can still be seen in the sidewalks.
I can't believe how much more I still have to write about our Illinois Vacation 2008 and all the picture I still have to share!
