A Sunday in Dubuque
John and I started our day attending services at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Dubuque, with niece Anne and nephew Martin joining us. Both of them recently moved to the city with their families- Martin will be a professor at Wartburg Seminary and Anne will be a student in her fourth year. They, as well as spouses and children, are looking forward to this school year when the families will be living close to each other.
After church we all met for a picnic lunch at Eagle Point Park, which is situated along the Mississippi River. Pictured below is some of our group watching barges passing through the locks.
