I'm tired of the cold. I keep daydreaming about summer -- I have a laundry list of things I want to do again, or for the first time this year, in the QCA. Today, I'm going to close my eyes and imagine I'm at one of the following places: 

1. West Lake 

2. Maquoketa caves

3. Canoeing the river in Monticello 

4. Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds 

5. LeClaire restaurant patio 

6. Bike path along the Mississippi River 

7. Modern Woodman Park for a Quad City River Bandits game 

8. Strolling through Schweibert Park 

9. Buffalo Beach 

10. Wild Thunder 

11. Dancing at Blues Fest, Bix Fest, Qc Pride Fest, ALL THE FESTS!! 

12. On a Channel Cat river ride

13. Galena

14. Starved Rock 

15. Niabi Zoo

I picked up this awesome genie lamp at an antique store in LeClaire - (Big River Antiques, check 'em out!) - and I'm hoping that my wish for summer to come early, comes true! :)
