For a spring break trip, I went to Mt. Zion, Illinois to visit my friend Kendra and her husband Daniel. I went up Friday night and stayed until Wednesday.
This was taken on my trip up to Illinois. It rained on and off on my trip up there. I thought this scene was beautiful while I was driving. Pictures don't quite give you the same affect, but take my word for it. It was really dark in the background and really bright above me and the trees. That was right before it got pitch black :D.
Kendra and I decided to bake up a storm one night. It was really fun. I told her I felt like we were playing house ! IT's so fun to go visit and stay with her. We've known each other since the 3rd grade. We've attempted many things in the past...rag curls, or baking, etc....Now we're doing everything in her house :D
We spent a day in Springfield. We went through the Lincoln museum, Lincoln's house, and made a pit stop in Cold stone before heading home.
The next day....we went to Arthur, an Amish town...
This is right outside of a schoolhouse. We went to a bulk store which I have dubbed the "Baker's Mecca." So much fun! Kendra and I walked downtown and went to several fun antique stores. We drove around the countryside and looked at farms. THen we ate at an Amish restaurant. The food was wonderful...
