Maquoketa Caves State Park

Day trip to Maquoketa Caves. The kids loved exploring all the side caves and nooks. Located about 1.5 hrs northeast of Vinton. Spent a little over an hour hiking and spelunking. June didn’t fuss the entire time in the back carrier. Excellent fun!!

A Sweet Way to Be(e)

Coralee’s allergies have been well under control the last few days thanks to…..

A spoonful of local honey (from Merritt’s friend Cooper’s grandma) and a dose of Claritin have worked wonders! No more sneezing and no more throat clearing! I may need to try the spoonful of honey myself when fall allergies start kicking my booty! Merritt asked Coralee how she liked her new morning medicine and she said it was “OK” with a big smile as she licked her lips. I’m thinking she’s liking it more than OK. 😉
