On the Road to Indiana

Once again, we left early enough to make it to the Chicago area to introduce the girls to Chicago-style pizza for lunch. It was a long wait - made more tolerable with a "school" lesson at the table. But definitely worth the wait!

 Then we found our way to a state park on the south side of Lake Michigan. The girls loved getting to see the "beach" on this trip.

We'd love to report they got along this well all day in the car...but we probably couldn't convince you.
Sand angels?
If you look closely, you'll see the Chicago skyline

After finding the hotel, we made some time to visit the cemetery where Dan's grandparents are laid to rest, as well as the home where his mom grew up and his great-grandmother's house just down the road.

And if adding 2 new states for Annie (and 1 new one for Dayna) wasn't enough, we even crossed the border into Michigan to find a geocache.
