Inpromptu Road Trip

The Farmer and I are spur-of-the-moment kind of people. The Farmer's *Daughter* had to return to her apartment in central Illinois and we decided to head down there this evening to spend the weekend with her. We'll be doing a Low Country Shrimp Boil this evening, recipe thanks to the Deen brothers (yes, Paula's brood).

I'm planning to take some road trip pictures as we will be passing the wind farm in Paw Paw and the birthplace of Wild Bill Hickock in Troy Grove, Illinois. There's a small memorial to him in the middle of town.

See you on Monday!!! Have a great and relaxing weekend.

I love impromptu road trips... some of our best finds (and memories) come from trips like that! I soooo envy you to have a low country shrimp boil... I miss those. If I ate as much shrimp as I wanted, I'd be in the hospital for certain.
Enjoy your weekend, Suzanne!

Isn't it great to be able to pick up and go every once in a while? Yay for your golden opportunity!

Spur of the moment trips are always the best.
