Weekend in Galena

We had a fantastic long weekend in Galena, IL. We relax, shop, eat, laugh, and talk. It's wonderful and it's something I look forward to all year. We go the same time every year because they have an amazing "fall festival" which is a craft fair with over 200 vendors. It's not "grandma crafts" it's actually things you can find on Etsy and stuff you actually want in your home. If you love a good craft fair, then I would recommend Galena, IL in October to you! Besides the craft show, the downtown shopping is so much fun- from kid stores, to handmade jewelry that celebrities have worn, to antiques, etc. Oh and the restaurants, there are so many in one area, take your pick! We love "Durty Gurty's" it's has amazing hamburgers! "Fried Green Tomatoes" is another great restaurant! Claire had a great time, we all did. Weather this year was great. Last year it actually snowed and this year, it was in the 80's! I preferred this years weather but again who wouldn't!

Here are some pictures from our trip! Enjoy!

Ready to hit the town!

The best thing invented - she LOVES to walk but she's not old enough to want to stay with us, she to much of a wanderer!
