My wife and I have always enjoyed and made the most of of every (healthy) weekend.
Whether it be a trip to Starved Rock, or attending the latest event she finds on Facebook, staying home is almost never on the agenda for a Saturday or Sunday.
It has led (the four of) us many places, from Atlantic City to New Orleans to Green Bay on a national scale. From Morton Arboretum (today) to Starved Rock to Illinois Beach State Park on a more local scale.
Lately, we have begun to make a list of the places we enjoyed the most, so that when our little guy comes we can double back and hit them again. We certainly hope to instill in our little man the importance of exploration, love for animals, and passion for outdoor life which Steph and I hold dear.
