We're home from our travels to the Heartland where, among other places, DH and I enjoyed St. Louis, MO and Springfield, IL where we went to the http://www.lincolnlibraryandmuseum.com/ This is absolutely the most technologically advanced museum in the US. If you ever have a chance to visit it, DO!
Our visit to Hannibal, MO http://www.visithannibal.com/ was truly a step or three back in time! I spent an hour or so at http://www.ayerspottery.com/storeindex.php and bought several irresistable pieces. DH and I spent our last night there on a most relaxing, beautiful, and delicious dinner cruise via the mighty, muddy Mississippi River. http://www.marktwainriverboat.com/cruise.html
