Then Toledo, Ohio
We’re ready, what’s next?
We hated the pool
And then Lolly hurt her nose
But the beds were nice
Hotel Breakfast with Lolly = WAY TOO MUCH on her plate that she can’t finish:
Today we left the gas station at 8:02 AM and did not stop driving until we pulled into the driveway at my parent’s house. After the girls read the 3rd clue and figured out where we were off to, there was no swaying them! I suggested we stop in South Bend or Chicago, but no–they just wanted to KEEP GOING!
Today’s drive was all farmland. I loved seeing the fields and fields of crops and the beautiful farmhouses and barns. We saw fields of assorted sheep and a pasture with more baby cows than mama cows. My favorite was when there was a tiny and beautiful church complete with graveyard in the middle of the farm country! We also saw actual humans in the fields working and hypothesized at what those giant rigs were in each field.
This morning we listened to Mary Poppins which was much more engaging than Millie the day before. Pickle liked listening to the music and then we got her through that long ride with home videos and Babies.
At Mom and Dad’s house we just plunged right in to home cooking and “country” (as my kids call it) living.
Normally I like to let my parents give me a little break from the kids, but today I played the games and picked the lettuce in the garden. I was really tired, but I just powered through it. My Mom rewarded me with her better-than-cafe-rio salad. It was soooooooo good.
There were no badges earned today, in fact not all the points were earned today (just a little scuffle over I don’t even know what), but we are doing well.
The weather here in the suburbs of Chicago is rainy and cool. We have opted for a night in watching What About Bob? Our next car day is July 4th–check in to see where we are spending it (and with who!)
