Oh Yeah, Plus Our Trip to Normal

Besides our late summer trip to Texas, we have a weekend trip to Normal, Illinois.  Justin and Ethan have been invited to participate in the Special Olympics Summer Games at Illinois State University.  We’re going for a weekend in mid-June. 

Of course, what would any trip be without a Google Map?  And the hotel… and pictures, after we return.

Our Texas Trip

We’re going to Dallas, Texas in mid-August for our family vacation.  I’ve just planned out the route and hotels, so as usual I will give my blog readers a look at our plans.

This is a Google Map of our outbound trip. It’s split into two days, Chicago to Springfield, MO and then Springfield to Dallas.  While staying over in Springfield, we’ll stay at the Holiday Inn & Suites.  It’s near Branson, so we’re staying over an extra day and might go check out some funky music.  Once we arrive in Dallas, we’ll stay at a Holiday Inn Express near my cousin’s house.

On the way home, we’ll take basically the same route home, but keep going through Springfield and stop over for our first night at a Holiday Inn in Lebanon, MO.   Then it’s the final leg back to Chicago.

A Day At The Ballpark

We spent last Saturday at the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field, watching the NL Central-leading Cubs play the Pittsburg Pirates.  Unfortunately, they lost the game, but came back the next day and won.  Pictures are gone, which included views from our seats, the family, and a couple from dinner at Bakers Square afterwards.

My Project

As some of you know, and now everyone does: last year I bought a project car, a 1963 Chrysler Newport sedan.  It needs body work and a new power steering pump.  We’re (Aaron and I) going to work on it in our “spare” time.

You might see posts here about our progress.  It’ll be slow to start out, but grow as time passes.  Keep an eye on the new “Vintage Car” category if you want to see the latest of what’s going on.   And of course, pictures soon.
