We take a family vacation every year to Starved Rock Lodge
One entire side of my husbands family books the lodge and
we make a weekend of it! Lots of games, drinking, eating, hiking, did I say drinking??
Oh it is such a good time.
This year though my daughter did not join us so it was a little weird.
I usually have her and a friend crashing my room...it was quite, but it was also nice ;)
This year was even cooler because for the first time ever going there in 15 years we got to see a
bald Eagle! It was right outside the lodge and attracting A LOT of attention. It was SOOO cool to be that close!
