Alton, Illinois - Zip Lining

The rest of our vacation was filled with days walking the dogs (daughter), feeding a swan (daughter), driving the golf cart around like a mad man (son) and eating every single kind of Haagen- Dazs ice cream available in the Midwest (me). 
Two days, we especially enjoyed were filled with a visit to Alton where we had a very delicious lunch at "My Just Desserts" and admired the apartment of my cousin and her boy-friend who are lucky enough to live there. 
I wouldn't mind living in an old brick house right next to the Mississippi!

 Another day that made an impression on me was the day son, cousin and her boy-friend went zip lining in the pouring rain. To this day I don't know how they climbed this gigantic wall without slipping...

Ich freue mich ja, dass ihr einen so ereignisreichen Urlaub hattet, es wurde aber trotzdem Zeit, dass du wieder mal zum Arbeiten auftauchst!!!
