I’m a little belated in my post about our extended weekend with Aunt Sissy. The last two years, my sister has come to visit over the Columbus Day weekend. She lives in California, so our time together is short.
I always know there will be at least two things that happen when Sissy is in town: good food and lots of laughs. Oh, make that three: lots of Coffee Hound trips.
We ventured to a new place in Peoria when she was here. I never knew this place existed until that weekend. Wildlife Prairie Park. We saw birds of prey, bears, coyotes, cougars and more. Izzy got to experience “the pioneer life”. Oh, we rang a large bell too.
This child is my mini me. It’s unbelievable.
Sadly, we did not ride the train through the park because there was a billion people in line. Oh well. Next time! We did venture out for some yummy BBQ after our time at the park.
I always look forward to adventures with Sissy. She keeps me grounded, and I don’t know what I would do without her. Until the holidays.
