Now that I can post pictures, you can see a little bit more of what we've done over the last week. Today we drove from Springfield, Il to Hannibal, MO. It was only a 2 hour drive which gave us all afternoon to be tourists. We played at "Sawyer Creek" which was a little mini golf/bumper boat (lame) place for kids. From there we ate lunch and boarded the Mark Twain River Boat for an hour cruise on the Mississippi. It was a beautiful day, and the kids and I are wimps with the bugs. There's hardly any to speak of if you're a local. Jackson has sometihing like 19 bites, Sammy has about 8, and LIlly and I come in last with less than four. The locals think nothing of them. Such southern California wimps.
After the boat, we drove by Mark Twain's home (we'll tour it tomorrow) and came back to our campground where the Mark Twain Cave is. That was the crowd favorite. The kids really enjoyed the cave tour. It was a hideout for Jesse James at one point, and it's over 100 million years old.
Since our campground is at the entance of the cave, we moved right in. It's a distant second to our beloved KOA in Springfield. But I got us hooked up and fed, math done and that is all good. Tomorrow we'll go back to Springfield for one last night before continuing east to Indiana.
