Back to the trip
I know you are just dying to hear about the final leg of our journey. What happened after Matt and Traci left Wisconsin? Well, here are a few more insights.
We tried to go into Chicago for dinner. Chicago is a HUGE city! We didn't really know our way around and there was no place to park. We got honked at a lot and had some fun watching people, but ended up driving around and bickering a bit because I was dying to get out of the car and starting to get hungry.
We finally found Wrigley field and a place to park. We walked around for a little while on the strip by the field and got to experience some rowdy fans that had just finished watching a game at the sports bars. Just before the rain started we found a cute little French/Italian restaraunt to eat at. It was delicious. Matt had a 4 cheese pizza to top off our "cheese day" experience and I had some aspargus with blue cheese and tomotoes to that was perfect for a late night meal.
Leaving Chicago was another experience. We were in the middle of a lightening storm. I had never seen actual bolts of lightening so upclose before. Very cool!
We finally made it to Merriville, Indiana for our last night away. We stayed in a nice hotel (thanks Ginny!) and slept wonderfully. I think I posted 5 blog entries that night because we had good internet access for the first time in a couple of days.
