A River Ride

I love day trips. There are so many places to explore that are close to home. We can leave in the morning and be back home in time to sleep in our own bed. Day trips are like a mini-vacation and we enjoy them!

This past weekend, we took hubby’s parents along with us and we went to Dubuque for a historic river cruise.

It was the perfect day for a boat ride. It was gorgeous outside. We ate a deli lunch on the boat.

There were some amazing homes along the river. I had to snap a few pictures. This place looks like a castle!

After the boat ride, we did a little shopping and then visited by Grandpa at the assisted living facility. And then we headed home. It was a fun day!
