Trip to Alton, IL.

Sign of spring. I like dandelions, even if they are considered a weed.

A visit to the cemetary where Jon's grandpa is buried.

We drove through Amish country. I know they don't like us taking their photos.

Hannibal, MO, the home of Mark Twain. We looked around at the town.

Ferry on the Mississippi River.

Mississippi Rivr.

Michael driving the boat.

The beautiful lake.

Jon and Sarah on the pontoon boat.

We stayed here over the weekend.

Even the dog enjoys the ride.

Luke and Blake on the paddle boat.

Check out this faucet.

Now you know what missionaries really do while they drive: take pictures of a sunset while driving east.

We are enjoying the local state park. Here, Michael play with a frisbee.

Luke throws a frisbee.

We love Spring in Iowa.
