Midwest '09 Trip 1 -
Of course we were off to Minnesota to see the newly born Walker Twins! And
they are sooo cute! Like most of our vacations, we took this opportunity to see more
of our country. We stopped in the Mormon town of Nauvoo, IL on the way.
While in Minneapolis, we visited the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
During our return drive, we stopped at Clear Lake, Iowa which is the
site of the last performance of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big
Bopper before their tragic plane crash. Then we stopped just south of
Topeka, KS to see a very good business acquaintance, TJ Cunningham and
his wife Candy. Shortly thereafter, we traveled to Bella Vista, AR and
spent two nights with my old Minnesota buddy, Terry Wilson and his wife
Jody. They retired to a beautiful spot in the Arkansas Ozarks. Our last
stop was Branson, MO for two nights.
