Weekday Getaway

We decided to skip town early thurs and do what I like to call being a tourist in your own backyard..we drove an hr away to Dubuque and did some exploring.

since it ended up being a nice day we took our picnic lunch down by the river and ate. Then we spent the night at the grand harbor resort, which was alot of fun for Summer, it was actually her first time staying in a hotel and she just got a kick out of it, she said " I wish we lived here"...ya gotta laugh at that. then the next morning we went to the mines of spain ( which i guess is an area landmark) and had another picnic lunch there then hiked one of the many trails. could only hike 1/2 mile w/ summer ( james had to give her a piggyback ride on the way back).

We spent about 3hrs exploring the aquarium and museum and

it was a nice getaway but im still in need of a REAL vaca ...ive got my eye out and hopefully i can come across a good deal so just mom and dad can skip town and play :)

heres some pics of our exploring
