We have arrived at my moms in ip vt we’re going to be there visiting for 4 days, my cousin will be visiting and sister too.
Our kids are really excited to have home cooked meals, they are missing eating at the house. Pretty sick of eating out and I don’t blame them one bit. I’ll tell you more then ever we order salads cuz they feel so unhealthy lol 😝
We are going Blue berry picking and that is a thing they are pretty excited for. It has been since Jillian was 1 1/2 that she sat and stuffed her face with blueberries and the other two haven’t a clue where they come from. Safeway is all they can relate it to lol
Then kayaking was next! I swam to this island as a kid and it’s about a mile from the shore.. there was a cabin there and the only thing standing still is the rock chimney.. also got to show them winter leaves even if it’s not the season for the winter berries we still chewed on the leaves and they thought that was awesome!
Jilli got to peel off the bark/paper from the birch trees so she can write on them like I did as a kid
blue berry picking
Headed through Chicago so stopped for supper.
We’re about 8 hrs in of the last stretch home. After we are at miller’s pub, right under the Chicago L, we decided checking out ‘the bean’ would be awesome so that’s what we did. It was pretty cool and the buildings in the city were pretty cool too
