Day 2 was lots of fun. We were in no real rush so we got up when we wanted and headed out. We stopped in Shipshiwana because it was a good halfway point. It is a large amish community. They were having a HUGE auction and flea market so we walked around and admire all the amish handiwork and the boys loved seeing the animals that were there for the auction. A very nice amish man let the boys pet his horse and they thought it was the most wonderful thing. I loved the chance we had to talk about people believing different things and still being great people. Overall it was a really great experience. (I guess the only picture I took was of the cow the boys thought was so HUGE).
Then my wonderful husband humored me and took a back road through Michigan so I could officially say I had been there. All of the country we drove through was lovely. Then we went on to Chicago. We really didn't do a lot there other than enjoy the architecture and eat Chicago pizza. We debated weather we liked New York pizza or Chicago better. It was a tough decision and maybe I am biased but in the end I think I favor New York.
Spencer asked me a couple times when we would be going home. I have a feeling each day he might ask that more and more! So far though I give the kids an A+*. They have done really well and had lots of fun too.
*Unless we want to factor in Garret sitting on a marker and turning his clothes, car seat and body red. And Spencer peeing in at least 6 cups in one day!
