The Trip Sunday June 22, 2008

Sunday June 22, 2008. OK I am on the road with Mom & Rob going to pick up my great grandson from IL His name is Falcon and is eight weeks old from Stone Ridge. We have to travel about 560 miles. We are going to pick him up and turn around and drive back home again. The day was beautiful and I enjoyed looking out my window in the van. Things were going OK because Rob had a map telling how him how to get to there. HA When we reached Chicago we came to a point where a sign said Local or Express. Mom was driving and yelled Rob which one do I take? Rob said I don't know just pick one. So Mom took local and then pulled off the road and Rob got his cell phone out and was talking to a lady. He then turned to Mom and said We got lucky you picked the right one. Then we drove about a half hour longer. Until we came to a lot of different houses. Rob was on the cell again asking witch one. Look here I am!!!! Down the street was a lady jumping up and down waving her arms. We went in side and there was Falcon with two other little guys. Rob and Mom talked a while to the lady. Then we headed back home. Mom had a box with Falcon in it and I was sticking my nose in side to see what he was doing. We had to problems getting out of Chicago. But it was not long before there were signs saying Slow Down Men At Work. Talk about slow. Rob was going about 2 miles a hour. It was not only me wondering how long will it be before we get home. We drove at this speed for a very long time. Then Rob pulled off the express way and we got a sub. I got my share but Falcon didn't get any. Then at last after being 13 hours on the road we were home. Falcon was the only one wide a woke. No one got much sleep. Will post pictures later. Going to get some sleep. Bye for now.

You did great by navigating the expressways in Chicago! That's where we are from originally and the WORST thing is being in the WRONG LANE when your exit pops up! You are so lucky to have a new baby in the house. This is so cool -- he is ADORABLE.
