We will be heading to a private campground near Galena, Illinois. There is a pool, miniature golf, and horseshoes, so there will be a few more things for the kids to do. Jack is a bit of a Civil War buff and we will take in the historical sites in Galena. There is even a geocache right in the campground. We have also printed the schedule for sightings of the International Space Station. We picked up water balloon slingshots, another water balloon toy, and diving sticks. We are stocked up on glowsticks, flashlights, and headlamps.
And what's on the menu? Goulash, chicken, hot dogs, sweet corn, cupcakes, mac and cheese--not our usual gourmet level, but appropriate for the clientele. We will not starve. Even better, the weather forecast is scarily perfect--and with the Iowa State Fair going on too! Stay tuned.
