Illinois is long....kind of like French Bread

That is what Adam said to me when I commented how it is amazing that we could drive for 3 hours and still only be in the middle of the state (also a reference to our silly Cranium game on Saturday night).

Last night Adam and I drove down to Springfield to go to the Illinois Specialty Growers conference. This is the week of their annual conference and the pre-conference today was all about Pumpkins. We made really good time and had a lot of fun listening to the music on my new iPod. I put all 2,895 songs on shuffle and it was fun listening to really old songs along with new ones. It was also fun to sing together to songs that were popular long before we ever met.

Most of it was really interesting and we learned a lot about the different varieties of pumpkins that grow well in Illinois as well as a lot of other interesting information. There were a few sessions that were....well....let's just say I had a hard time keeping my head off the table. But for the most part, I had a really good time and we are both glad we went!
