Road Trippin’ – Day 2

As you may recall, our first day took us from Boston to Niagara Falls, with some fun pit stops on the way (Lucky The Bull, anyone?) so here is to day 2!

We left Niagara and Headed to Chicago.  But, as you might be able to guess, we had some fun stops along the way!

Our first stop was at Tim Hortons and James’ donut selfie might be my favorite picture from the entire trip.  We gave him an old digital camera and allowed him to take all the pictures he wanted.  Not one picture of Niagara Falls.  But a selfie with the donuts case!

It was pit stops like Shark Girl that really added that extra fun to the long drives!

Car creatures was one of the favorite stops of the boys (all of them!) – we spent quite a while wandering around this guy’s lawn!

The number of big chairs we saw on this trip was quite amusing!

2016 Rushmore - 20 Hall Of HeroesPP

Super Heroes by Magical Scraps Galore

There you have it!  Day two.  We are almost in Chicago.  What I didn’t scrap was that just after leaving the Hall of Heroes, the car started making a weird scraping noise when Rich would press on the gas… but only at certain speeds.  Those of you that know me, know that I am a worrier. So having the car start to make bad noises on day 2 of a 2+ week road trip pretty much took some years off of my life. But (spoiler alert) we made it to Mount Rushmore and back and the car survived. But it was touch and go there for a while (with me, not the car…)
