- 1 minivan
- 2 weeks
- over 1,800 miles (more than 830 on the last day, in our foolish desire to Just. Get. Home.)
…and most of the time, 11 people sharing one house!
He doesn’t get full credit for his “guess” because he knew where we were headed. We had talked about going to his place to pick up my new dishes, but he was busy teaching a class the only day we could go to upstate NY. We’ll make it up there another time, I hope!
I spent a couple of days here:
and a couple of nights here:
…doing a bit of people watching, listening to all types of music, and getting in a few special concerts. Thanks to free tickets and parking passes that my brother had available for us, we did all of this for FREE!!!
And did I mention free beer? I love my brother.
I did indeed get my Summerfest on!
This is me at the Rush concert.
My SIL is a saint and she came with me, even though the only Rush song she recognized was “Tom Sawyer.”
The next night, SuperDad came with us.
We based ourselves at the Oasis, but there was plenty to see and do along the shores of Lake Michigan. Most of the big-name concerts don’t start until after dark (some as late as 10pm).
We didn’t stick around to hear Trace Adkins’ entire set; I was nice and accompanied SuperDad to see the last part of Blondie.
I accompanied my niece and her friends to see the new American Girl movie, Kit Kittredge. It was a GREAT movie!! When it comes out on DVD, I’ll share it with my boys, because no boy would be caught dead seeing it in the theater.
And we experienced an awesome Midwest 4th of July.
Oh, and the highest gas prices we saw? $4.59/gallon for regular unleaded in Indiana. YIKES!!
I’m glad to be back to $3.99/gallon at my local Costco!
