Summer 2011 Road Trip - Day 2

Today’s journey was much more exciting than yesterday’s! We got up, got ready for the day and headed down to the free hotel breakfast. To our surprise there was a Belgian Waffle Bar set up - Yummy! They had four waffle stations set up and then a toppings bar of syrup, peaches and strawberries. It was quite a treat! The only picture I got of the waffle bar was on my phone, so I apologize for the quality.


I was also able to get a picture of the hot tub this morning since nobody was in it. Doesn’t that look cool?


After breakfast we continued on our journey to Illinois. On the way we stopped at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Museum and Library. Dave and I really like going to museums and finding out interesting things about historic people. We’re nerds, I know. We did learn some interesting things today, for example, Hoover did a lot of hunger/famine relief in Europe after World War I and Lou Hoover (his wife) is credited with starting the sales of Girl Scout Cookies. See, it is interesting, right?


We finally arrived at Dave’s grandparents house this afternoon and were greeted by family and food, tons and tons of food… and pie. Seriously. There are soups, stews, salads, bread and home-made pies out on the counters and everyone just sits around and chats and eats all afternoon. Ahhhhh, this is living!

Other family members are still arriving, but everyone should be here by tomorrow for Dave’s grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary party. It will be fun!
