Zack and the children left Blissfield at 5:30 in the morning and headed to Illinois. I stayed back to make sure the movers got all of our stuff onto the truck. Then headed south myself.
We camped in and went on adventures. We familiarized ourselves with some of the local shops.
The kiddos enjoyed cupcakes from Sweet Katie Bees. http://www.sweetkatiebees.com/
We also discovered Eckerts http://www.eckerts.com/, where we enjoyed frozen custard. We were going to do U-pick blackberries but it started to storm. Instead we bought produce and peanuts. John enjoyed opening the peanuts.
This part of Illinois has several really awesome parks with in walking distances or a short dive from our house.
We went to a Grizzly’ s Baseball game. John was given a ball by the first base umpire.
The firework display at the end of the game was exceptional!
