We planned on a two night stay in Galena but cut our visit short after one night as I was not feeling great.  We had a wonderful day though!  We drove up to Galena, stopped at some scenic oversights, walked around the shops, and ate lunch at a cute little restaurant.  We took a trolley tour of Galena which was my favorite part.  We did a brewery tour of the Galena Brewery which has only been open for a year and already they need room to expand!  We stayed there for tapas and so C could try some of their local brews.  We also won trivia there!  Then we drove toward Dubuque to try to find a casino (which we could not.)  Here are a few pictures from our trip:
We stopped at an overlook to take a few picture of the scenery:

Self-portrait time :)

Galena had TONS of Iowa items for sale in their cute shops!  We had meant to go back and buy a few items, but it's probably better that we didn't as we're trying to declutter for babies!

We had lunch at a cute little place called Benjamin's.  It was family run and I was in awe of how awesome their hospitality was, and was just a perfect start to the day there!  LOVE small town America!

We took a trolley tour and then toured the Galena Brewing Company.  We stayed for tapas and trivia, and actually won :)

Today we went to the outlet mall (Wahoo!!!  There is a maternity store there!) where C, myself, and both the girls got lots of nice clothing items :)  Then we headed to the casino to try our luck (Grandma was NOT passing on her good luck today, but we had a blast and I got more stares as a pregnant woman there then I thought possible!) and then dinner at Frog Bar.  Overall a wonderful anniversary trip/ anniversary.  Can't believe it's been 4 years already!

Happy Anniversary Babe :)
