Well we made it back from Illini State Park. Weather was just great and we really had fun camping with the Hartleys. Today we biked another 8 miles or so. We biked to Ottawa. When we stopped at a park, Cody (the Hartleys’ dog) got to swim in the Fox River. She loves to fetch sticks – branches really. She swims pretty good with a branch in her mouth!
In all, we had a great weekend and wished it didn’t have to end – but alas, reality set in. We’d go back to this park for sure. We’d even try to get site 5 again and if not available, then site 6.
That’s a wrap for this trip. Next trip coming up is to Sugar Shores Campground near Durand, IL in Shireland (NW of Rockford about a half hour). We’re also going to see the American Olympic Gymnastic team perform in Rockford one evening. Cool!
Here’s a great picture of Tina and Jackson:
