Chicago Part 1 . . .The Drive !

Yes. We drove.
When you are going to be gone for two weeks, it can be mighty expensive to put our sweet Ella in a kennel. So we decided to make the long journey with her.
I have to say Will and Ella are the best car travelers. Except in rest stops. Will acts like a monkey gone mad. That is a whole other story. With more ear infections involved. Yeah, I know...again!
Lew has done the drive so much so it doesn't bother him but I start going stir crazy! The drive can be anywhere from 10-14 hours! No. We did not stay over anywhere! I wish we would have because I hate the drive.

Will was busy playing with trains and watching movies the whole way there. When we got to Indiana I started taking pics of him and he wanted to take a picture with every toy he had. Such a silly guy!

All I have to say is boo! Go Cubs!
There are over 500 photos I have to go through but I promise there will be more interesting posts soon!
