A few weeks ago, my younger brother from Florida and my younger sister from California flew into Nashville so we could depart on a road trip to Davenport, Iowa (where we were all raised) to see our two older sisters and their families who still reside there.

I have always loved the rolling cornfields in the Midwest, but I never liked the six months of winter. It was great to see God’s Country again because it had been several years since my last visit.

We had no timetable on our road trip – we just wanted to take our time and see the sights along the way. Below is a short photo journey of some of our sights along the road.

Along Route 66 in Illinois.

On the road again…

On the way back, we made a detour to Casey, Illinois to see some of the world’s largest items…

Then back on the road again. Unfortunately, we missed this….On to Louisville, Kentucky, where we needed a short bourbon tasting break….

Then back to Nashville. What a great trip! It was great to see the old homestead and family and friends!
