Vacation

My Trip to Illinois Part II

Day Two:

We took a walk around the property so I could see what exactly we own. This is a view from the spot they picked out for our future cottage...it looks out to our little pond.


Matthew planted some grape vines to start his own vineyard


Beautiful fall colors


One of our soybean fields


Here's our other pond:


My mom took me to see the Plasters Grove church, which was donated by my great great grandpa. There's only 11 members of the church :( So if it goes under the land goes back to us...what the heck would our family do with a church and cemetery?!


On the drive back to the cabin, there was a huge gross turkey vulture thing eating a dead animal on the road:


Pretty red plant: :)
