Day 1: Journey to Florida!

Friday, March 31, 2017: We hit the road a little later than we wanted to but started our long journey to Florida for the swim meet and some FUN!!

The boys had the second row while the girls made a blanket fort in the rear of the van!

From Minnesota, we drove into Wisconsin.

Yes... Its a pink elephant with glasses!

And we found a bear...

a cowboy...

a dinosaur...

a cow...


Wisconsin is world famous for its many wonderful cheeses!

This is just a tiny sample of the thousands of cheeses they had in stock.

Here is Nick showing the children we have just crossed from Wisconsin into Illinois.

Our day would not be complete without another strange roadside oddity!

Finally, a late night movie keeps them amused.

9 hours, 22 minutes (not including stops) for 632 miles (1017.11 km) through Wisconsin and most of Illinois!
