Our big 5 year Wedding Anniversary was on September 30th. Andy and I took off work on that day and headed east to Galena, IL. We made a pit stop in Williamsburg for a little shopping, then made our way to Dubuque, checked in to our hotel and then went to Galena for a little shopping, etc. What a cute little town! Lots of cute shops, scenic walk-ways, neat architecture and fun eating spots. On Friday night we ate a yummy dinner after a long day and just relaxed. Then on Saturday we had a full day of more shopping, sight-seeing and a great dinner at L.May in Dubuque...highly recommended!! Then Andy had a surprise for me and we rode this cable car-type thing up this super steep hill...I'm not too fond of heights but it was pretty neat and had excellent views at the top. All in all it was a great trip away, we had so much fun and it was much needed. Brady spent the weekend with Nana and Papa and got to go to the zoo in Omaha...he had a blast!

This is what we rode up...yikes!
There was a chili cook-off going on in downtown Dubuque which was fun to see
