One of the highlights of our recent trip was seeing the Mississippi River. I was the only one in the family who had seen it before (me and the Mississippi are old, old friends.) The kids were very impressed. "I tell ya, it's quite a sight," said Bean. Especially at sunset.
The Badger had to put his fingers in the water so he could say that he'd touched the Mississippi River.
There were water lillies growing all along its margins.
