    Indiana and my sister’s wedding

    Thursday, May 25th, 2017

    I took the opportunity of all of us looking nice to have Nick take a pic.

    It is usually a bit of work to get everyone to cooperate.

    TREC ~Bike Trail in Effingham, ILL

    Wednesday, May 24th, 2017


    Whenever we are going to visit my family in Indiana, we like to stop at Effingham, ILL.

    This is the first time I had seen anything about this bike trail though.


    It was nice to get out and run around!

    It is a beautiful trail also!

    It took a lot to get my kids to stop getting in the shot of just Nick and I…



    Nick moved it off the trail.

    Glad we have a new place to run off some energy after the long drive through Illinois.

     It can be difficult to find the entrances so make sure you read up on it before you go.

    Shaw Nature Reserve, MO

    While very beautiful and really close to Interstate 40, most of the trails are not accessible except by foot on weekends.

    The main road that goes through the Reserve is closed Friday-Sunday to vehicles.

    I can’t find any information about this on their website but we were told that was the case and they had the road closed when we were there on a Friday.


    I thought this rain garden idea was interesting.


    The garden at Bascom House was beautiful.

    I would like to go again when all the trails are accessible or we are able to hike to the other trails.
