We woke up early with intentions of going to the Lincoln Park Zoo but decided to leave for the Badlands. We packed up our bed, backpacks and re organized the truck and then took Ky to the Dog park one last time. Once again she had a great time and made a lot of doggie friends. They enjoyed chasing after Ky, especially when she had a tennis ball in her mouth. :) Everyday we went to the dog park we lost a tennis ball. Chicago is beautiful and I wouldn't mind living there during the spring or summer. Lets just say Greg gave me the "okay Michelle okay" look. So, we left Chicago on our 15 hour drive to the Badlands. Mind you it was Sunday and the Buffalo Bills were playing. Greg was desperate to find the game on the radio. He failed horribly. :) Being the high tech Asian I am I found him an app that streamed the game for him. He was in heaven. In the midst of finding the game he mentioned going to the Mall of America which I've always wanted to go to. He said his mom had some friends that lived in the area and said we could stay with them and go to the mall the next day. It being 6 hours to the Mall of America we felt it was too short notice to ask them if we could stay. So, we ventured onto the Badlands. We stopped at a gas station in Wisconsin and had lunch on the tailgate of the truck and let Ky run around with her ball. Ky and I took naps here and there. I offered to drive but Greg said he's a horrible co-pilot meaning he'd fall asleep in minutes. I realized on a road trip it's a perfect opportunity to find out more about each other. We asked each other questions about our childhoods, our views on certain topics, we debated & we agreed on a lot. I decided to play the "guess this song" game with Greg which brought up childhood, teenage and college memories. I played a song and he had to guess the artist or the song title. I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. It was about 10:00pm when Greg said "would you mind it if I just drove as far as I can until I feel tired?" my response "OF COURSE!" Ky slept on my lap while I slept and Greg drove through South Dakota. Onto the Badlands...
