Mississippi River & cheese curds
Today was our annual Mississippi River trip. The colors are not at their peak yet but we sure enjoyed the beauty along the river.
Our first stop was the War Memorial Park in Arcadia. What an emotional experience as you view the memorials from each of the wars, along the Soldiers Walk. They recently added the War on Terrorism 9/11 Memorial. Made me cry as I was reminded why we are fighting this war.
May we always remember and never forget.
We drove up my favorite bluff, Buena Vista Park in Alma, overlooking the mighty Mississippi and had fun posing for pics.
My Mom & Dad have been married for over 58 years. They sure do look great!
We always stop in Nelson for ice cream and cheese curds at the cheese factory. YUM! Then we walked across the street and bought rutabagas and squash at a veggie stand. As you can see, Randy is enjoying his bag of cheese curds. They are sooo good!
What are cheese curds, you may ask? Read HERE. I have always called cheese curds... squeaky cheese!
