Our Trip East

 

Hello!
I have been MIA getting things tied up
and other things organized so I could
return to school knowing that I got
some things accomplished this summer.
Another post on that soon.




 Last week I gave you a sneak peek of our
vacation. So we left Kansas and headed
North on I-35 towards Des Moines, Iowa.
Stopped for lunch here. Great food and a
fun atmosphere. After lunch we got back
on the road and headed East on I-80.


We made an unplanned stop here. Now,
I ask you: "Who could pass up stopping
at a place with this title? "Well, not us!!
They are not kidding, this place is HUGE!
Two floors of retail and food the third
floor was for the truck drivers to find
some respite from the road.
We had soooo much fun here plus it
was good to get out and move around.
 
 
Here are more pictures of the delightful
storm we drove through in La Salle, 
Illinois.



Mr. Ken loved it but a bit worried, of
course he didn't tell me that until we
drove out from under it.
 
 
FRIGHTING!!!!

 

Waiting for the train to go into THE
WINDY CITY.

 
Pictures of the big city. The L.

 
Signs, signs everywhere signs.



 Solider Field, home the Chicago Bears.
We are riding in a cab, so I had to take
the pic FAST!!! : )


One of the awesome views of the city.

Stay tuned another vacay post coming
soon.

  1. Would you believe that, for as long as we've lived here, I've never been on the el? I've taken the train into the city--just get off before the elevated (hence the "el") part!! It's a wonderful city and mostly I drive. Parking is very expensive though.

    Best,
    Bonnie

    1. Where have I been...Sorry I am responding late.
      Parking is expensive for sure and we
      came in from the burbs each day.
      It was interesting using these modes of transportation.

  6. Looks like it was a great trip!! I've never been to Chicago but I would also like to visit there someday. I kinda think that the food there at buzzard billy's was probably pretty good. I tend to enjoy roadside restaurants along the way.
