So what did I do first? I started out my summer as any self-respecting Peorian would - at the Burger Barge. I've only ever been here once before, but I don't really think I truly appreciated it. It is such a dive - but in a totally good way. Being right on the river, and having sand under your feet, along with the Jimmy Buffet playing overhead I almost got the feeling I was actually on some tropical vacation (although I wouldn't go so far as to say a LUXURY tropical vacay). I had a burger that actually had a fried egg on it and it was del-icious. Below are some Burger Barge exclusive shots from our adventure.
Action shot! This doesn't quite capture the intensity of Liam's anguish.
Right after the trail we headed over to Lou's Drive-In - a Peoria staple for dinner. We got some awesome food and great root beer in mugs. :) Miles even got this super cute little jr. root beer. He didn't really like it, but I had to get a picture because he was so darn cute.
That's my report for this week. I will be out of town this weekend, but hope to update my adventures of being wooed by P-town more when I get back.....
Next on the agenda - the Peoria Chiefs and salsa dancing lessons at the Contemporary Art Center. Dustin's really excited about that one. I'll keep you posted.
