October 2011

The month of October starts out with a very nice car show in Oregon, IL called "Autumn on Parade". It is held in a park across the Rock River from town.We usually park the car and walk in to town to check out the Arts and Crafts show and grab some lunch before we go back to check out all of the cars. We won a nice plaque for having the best "Orphan" of the show.

Danielle went to the Rochelle Homecoming with her friend, John.

We were able to get out on the water on the Waverunner one last time of the season. The colors around the Rock River were very nice. On our way to park the Waverunner for the season, we saw lots of other color along the way.

Joe and Cathy went to the Quad Cities to see the band, Chicago. Great concert!

On the way to the Quad Cities, Joe and Cathy went through the Mississippi Palisades State Park to check out the fall colors.

Dani entered her El Camino in her first car show. She received a lot of attention and won a trophy for her efforts.

The last Concert in the Park of the year.

Cathy and Brittany attended a Zumba Masters Class with the HOT Z Team group out of Texas. They were holding a class in our area.

Our church hosted a function for the kids called "Trunk or Treat". Brittany and Dani decorated the Accord trunk.

Joe's 48th birthday went down with some nice gifts and a nice day.

Joe started working on his latest boat project this month. It's a 1976 Glastron GT-150. See it at www.1976-GT150.blogspot.com

The pumpkins came out again for the 50th anniversary of Sycamore's Pumpkinfest

We had a nice get together for lunch before heading out to the Pumpkinfest Parade. Dani hauled her share to the parade this year.
