Today was a driving day, returning from Merrill to Chicago. The boys and Lori did get to go out on the boat one more time this morning while I stayed at her sister's house and got the car ready for our return trip. We ate at Noodles in Wausau for lunch, then were making good time back before hitting traffic north of Madison all the way into Illinois. The ride home got harried enough that we stopped a couple miles from my dad's house at a Walgreens so Michael could use the restroom. Dad had invited some family over dinner and a birthday cake for Lori, which made for an enjoyable evening. My knee will be happy that we won't be making any more long drives for the rest of the trip -- just days of enjoying Chicago.
Happy birthday Lori!
