June 23, 2005 – Girl’s Road Trip

Grandma and all of her female grandchildren hopped in the car and headed east to Maquoketa Caves and Dubuque.

Since some of the grandkids had not been in Illinois, they drove over the river to Illinois and Wisconsin, to make it a three state road trip.

The entrance to the cave feels good as the cool air rushes out on a hot, humid day.

The trip was not all educational and wholesome. Flarp was a big attraction on the way home. (For the uninitiated, Flarp is the modern-day whoopie cushion, except a skilled practitioner can perfect a much wider range of sounds and cadences than can be coaxed from an ordinary whoopie cushion.)

Flarp causes severe laughter and lots of playacting!

  1. That was a great trip! That picture of jill was when I when I didn`t hold my breath afer we past a graveyard and I was `was trying to get the evil spirtes out`t`! The holte we wanted to go we could not find it till after we spent one night in a diffrent hotle. The holte we wanted to go to the firts place was full the scend night. After finding that out we visted the caves and they were great! That trip I would pay for all the money to do it again!!!!

  2. Jill really enjoyed the Doller General. We went there three times on one trip! About flarp, all I can say is PPHHHTTTT!
    It was so much fun. Dubuque is an awesome town and had so many interesting things to do. We went to a thrift/consignmnet shop and got a bagful of clothes each for seven dollers! THAT was fun!
