Summer time in the Kolb home means a trip to Galena and my family came with, so it’s a win-win for me! If you’ve never been to or even heard of Galena, you’re definitely missing out. It is a historical town in Northern Illinois with cute shops, quaint little restaurants and old fashioned candy and ice cream stores. Of course the day we picked to go, it was almost 90 degrees and humidity, so the ice cream shop was definitely calling our name and every shop we entered had their air blasting, which felt AMAZING! Nathan’s viewpoint is, our day will go by really quick if we don’t walk through every store. So we weren’t really paying attention to what store was next, and when we entered the candy shop, I instantly had the song “The Candy Man Can” from Willy Wonka playing in my head. If you haven’t been to this town, it’s a must! I mean, it’s the home of our 18th president Ulysses S. Grant. Take a look below at our little summer adventure.
