The folks set off yesterday morning for Lensing Historic Auto Museum. It is also known as Historic Auto Attractions. The museum is actually located in Roscoe, IL which is near Rockford.
Instead of talking, I will show you some of photos that Mama took. She took over 80, but we will just show you a sample.

Rockford is the home of the "sock monkey", so the folks stopped at that museum next. However, they were having a special event, so the folks decided to come back at another time. That museum also has a display of the Rockford Peaches. Remember them from A League Of Their Own? Yep, Mama says they are planning another trip to Rockford.
