we found indian mounds in Illinois.

There's this place in my heart that loves learning about cultures and groups of people and the way they lived.  When we heard about the indian mounds just 20 minutes from our place, I knew we had to go check them out, even if it meant kidnapping Ben and forcing him to come with.  (For the record, it only took a couple months of convincing to get Ben to go with me.  Museums aren't his thing. ;))  This past Saturday we realized we had nothing to do all afternoon, so we subjected our pasty white skin to the sun and hiked Monks Mound.  The view did not disappoint.  And Ben secretly thought the museum wasn't half bad.  ;)
