Casey, Illinois . . . the small town with a big heart

I’m back from Illinois!

Although we had lots of rain while we were there, we had a splendid time! We spend an entire afternoon in Casey, Illinois — the small town with a big heart!

Casey is famous for big . . . huge . . . giant . . .

OK!  They have the World’s Largest . . . rocking chair, wind chimes, knitting needles. crochet hook, pencil, mailbox, bird cage, horseshoe and golf tee. There may even be more things that we missed, but we saw as much as we could fit into the time we had — and most everything was “hands on” fun for the whole family.

Wow!  That rocking chair is BIG!

Right across from the rocking chair — is the set of wind chimes — and yes, they really work! My grandson loved making them ring . . .

And this mailbox will hold all the Christmas mail for the whole state — maybe!

I’m thinking the birdcage was our favorite… the kiddies LOVED it! They sat inside and sang . . .

In the meantime, God bless you and have a great weekend!
