BC: So long! We had a great time!
FC: The Millers in Galena Summer 2010
1: In 2010 we took our family vacation to Galena, Illinois.. Here's a reminder of the fun we had together.
2: We rented a condo in the Galena Territory from a great couple. It was better than a hotel! We had a great kitchen, pit sofa with a huge TV, washer and dryer, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a grill, a patio... more than everything we needed to make it home for a week. | The girls slept on the bed and on an inflatable bed upstairs, while Mom and Dad took the bedroom downstairs.
3: David and the girls enjoying "Movie Night!" complete with colored popcorn.
4: One of the first things we did was to take the girls on nntheir first horseback rides. Lauren rode on "King" and Caroline had 'Foxy."
5: Caroline loved Foxy, but was scared to actually get on him. So, while Lauren rode, Caroline happily fed her horse.
7: We picked a beautiful day to rent a pontoon boat. Tranquil water, scenic vistas, wildlife, an even one of the holes David golfed!
8: David | David loves golfing, and no vacation is complete without it. In Galena he golfed twice, on "The General" and another Eagle Ridge course.. Once he partnered with others, and once he had the course to himself.
10: After a post-golf lunch at the clubhouse with Daddy we were off to the playground for some fun!
13: Galena is rich with history, and we loved seeing all the sights. We had ice cream, visited a real blacksmith, and rode in an old-timey wooden trolley as we learned about this fascinating little town.
14: Checking out the falls on another gorgeous day.
15: We were very blessed to have amazing summer weather the entire time we were in Galena. Daddy golfed, Mom strolled downtown (especially at the bead shop and the yarn shop), the girls played on the playgrounds and we all swam, too. Just right for every activity!
