This past weekend my roomies and I went to Normal, IL and just outside of Danvers. Never heard of it? Why not?! Well, you probably haven’t. If you have, I’m impressed! My roomie Jen grew up on a farm in that area so we stayed one night with her mom and stepdad where we carved pumpkins and roasted hot dogs in their fire pit, and one night on her dad and stepmom on their farm. The farm was awesome! The views were amazing! We watched the sunset and roasted hot dogs and s’mores.
We also had very unhealthy meals of beans, cheesy potatoes for dinner, and pastries, eggs, bacon, and locally canned spiced peaches for breakfast. Her dad drove us around in his truck and we got airborne on a few hills. It was so peaceful and quiet I was actually a little disappointed to have to come back to the city so soon. Had to, though. Off to work now :)
