Up the river

When I come to Peoria, my mom, sister and I like to take a drive up along the Illinois River, especially when the weather is so gorgeous.  Growing up, my siblings and I would spend some weekends at my aunt and uncle’s “river” house.  We have many happy (and some interesting:) memories of the times that we spent at their house along the river and our trips motoring on their pontoon boat to camp on sandbars.

Laughing with my sister is always something I look forward to when I visit.  My favorite part of this barge video is the background audio of my sister shouting information to me about the barge:) She holds a very special place in my heart.
