Franco is hidden somewhere in all those sleeping bags.
The night was warm- didn’t turn the heat on until 6am. Kids didn’t have any problems with school.
Grayson had a break for gym and asked for another run. We did the entire loop of the RV park, passing one row of homes on a side street it backs up to, a cemetery and a lotta motor homes. The loop was .6 miles so we did it fives times plus a little more so we hit the 3.1 mile mark. Eminem motivating us. It was far easier than yesterday because of the shade.
Off to Indy after school-
I tried to get a covid test in St Louis (just because we have not tested this entire time and been to many states with increasing numbers) but I was turned away because I could not pull up to the Wallgreens window (????) because we would not have made the clearance in BigE. I walked up and tried to do but they turned me away because I was not in a car??? I have done this wallgreens test before- it is self administered and you get the test in the shoot (like bank teller) but they refused me nonetheless. So stupid.
Barbecue for lunch (C and I ate veggie sides) and the obligatory arch photo.
Stuck in train traffic-
St. Louis reminded me of the D with some beautiful old historic buildings.
Then off to Indy-
The ONLY gas station where the attendant was not wearing a mask (and was elderly) was in Martinsville Illinois.
Won’t forget it because it was eerie. Also because all the truck drivers used this remote stop to buy half cases of beer 😳.
Finally arrive in Zionsville Indiana- to a warm Pool on a warm fall night.
Hollys kids line up well with our crew- Sofi 9, Maddy 7 and Tate and Hudson almost 5.
It was instant fun. We lost them to the basement and all the toys.
school was a challenge because they wanted to be playing with the Fenechs who were off on fall break.
Zionsville such a charming town with its brick streets. Had to peel these guys away to get back on the road.
More windmills and beautiful skies en route to Chicago. Three+ hours, 185 mile drive that was delayed by two major accidents including a tractor trailer on its side.
Then a familiar site with a lucky parking spot in front to boot.
Harry Potter themed Halloween decor nearby. So cool!
Kids so happy to be back with cousins!
