Our weekend review posts is up again today. I had not have a lot of free time to write them up these past few weeks. This weekend we took the children to Royal Oak Farm in Harvard, Illinois.

My hubby wanted to take a small trip before the summer ends. He discussed going to Wisconsin Dells but I was not to thrilled about the idea.
