We left Whispering Pines at 9 AM - woke up to a temperature of 60! Whoaaa.....when we would wake up in FL at 7 AM, it was already in the 80's. .....good day of travel with pretty blue skies and puffy clouds. Stopped in Shelbyville, IN for lunch on Daisy at a Wal Mart parking lot (Brady and Grandpa went inside to pick up a few things while I made sandwiches).
Brady is a great traveler - hardly know he's with us but always wants to know when we enter a new state! NC, TN, KY, IN, OH, IN and IL (that's the route we took)!
We arrived at Liam and Connor's house at 3:30.
The cousins are reunited!
The boys were very happy to see each other and we gabbed with Patrick and loaded up their stuff and off to Kamp Komfort. While Mark got Daisy settled and other odd jobs, I took the boys to the pool. Met Heidi and Greg - really nice neighbors who actually live about 1/2 hour away, but love to come here for the weekend
(they are still working).
1 - 2 - 3 JUMP!
We stopped at a Pilot Truck Stop near Danville that makes cinnabons daily - Brady loves the cereal, but had never had the actual cinnabon, Same for Liam and Connor, so they practically inhaled the one cinnabon we bought for them to share!
Enjoying their first cinnabon
When we were still in NC, Brady had asked if he could have some apple pie, cause "IL has everything and I really would like apple pie"!!!!! Well, tonight we took them to The Busy Corner in Goodfield and they were in 7th Heaven......first of all, our dinners were delicious and then all the choices of delicious homemade pies which the Busy Corner is so well known for.
Trying to make a decision from 2 display cases full of delectable/delicious pies
Forget the apple....Brady and Liam chose and shared this big mile-high chocolate concoction.
Connor had blueberry crumble (my favorite) and Mark had triple berry. I sampled a little from each!
On our way home (Busy Corner is 7 miles from campground), we saw the beautiful "Blue Moon".
Brady was fascinated by all the corn as we were traveling along - the few times he's been to IL, it's been in the fall/winter (one summer when he was much younger) and so all this corn was quite a novelty to him +++ all the windmills.
Comparing how tall the corn was to them!
Bye bye July - it's been a GREAT month!!!
