A quiet day with cousins. The kids started at their own pace this morning after a late night yesterday.
The afternoon included a Creek walk for kids and a bunch of running around for Cliff.
Not to be outdone Hamilton had to make their bid at the best fritters too. The best are still in Fort Worth.
It was a great quiet day.
On the road again! Another three state/province day. IN-MI-ON. Just over 500miles today after changing the route slightly to avoid rush hour traffic in central Detroit.
We started the day with the second best apple fritters in the US.
We arrived late in Hamilton and settled in for a good and well needed rest day tomorrow
Day two took us to St Louis and through Illinois to Indiana.
Still a good 300 miles driven, but definitely less than yesterday.
The Arch was the highlight of the day. As was swimming at the hotel.
Today was a busy day of driving.
479 miles, 3 states (TX, OK, MO), 2 playgrounds. That’s our longest planned driving day going east.
It started with a blown fuse to the power outlet (cigarette lighter) that I promptly replaced.
On the road at 8:15 and at the hotel by 6:15. A great day for shows in the car and new sticker books.
Tomorrow, St Louis and the Gateway Arch!
Watching the finale of the Great British Bakeoff is intense!
The kids decided to build a city out of blocks today.
It includes a teleport station and an individual pod transport system hub. (Colin has been brain storming this idea of pods in tunnels, connecting every house and workplace in the world for a few days now). And of course, houses and art sculptures
My old iPhone had volume buttons that didn’t work, and a battery that died really fast.
Not anymore! Laura disassembled the phone, replaced the broken parts, and installed a new battery. And it worked again!
Thankfully when he told me what he wanted to create I had a good idea what it was. One wall is labeled Space Pod. The other is Space Station.
Maybe he’ll work on a space elevator next.
