SUNDAY FUNDAY: The Mighty Mississippi

The Mississippi River is basically our ocean...sorta. It's the biggest body of water we live around and serves as our most visited place for water recreation in the summer. However, when the weather gets colder, we are always finding ourselves somewhere along and high above the river. Here are a few of our favorite spots overlooking the Mighty Mississippi...

Palisades State Park in Savanna, Illinois

The week before last we made a quick trip across the river to view the river from the 'Illinois perspective'...not much different than the 'Iowa perspective' but equally beautiful.





Bellevue State Park in Bellevue, Iowa

Last week the boy and I revisited one of our first dates--Subway takeout picnic♥




Pikes Peak State Park in McGregor, Iowa.

I can't wait to go back up to Pikes Peak. The boy and I visited late winter/early spring of this year. Although it's a couple hours from home, I would LOVE to visit in the fall when all of the leaves are changing...




Hope you all are having a great weekend--can't forget to mention that IOWA beat Iowa State in college football last night!
GO HAWKS!
