We attempted to get out really early, and, not surprisingly, ended up getting out reasonably early.  From St. Louis, we have about 6 hours of driving to get to Cincinnati, where my aunt, uncle, and cousin live.  We drove straight through, with a few stops for gas and the bathroom.  We entered Illinois at 10:02am, Indiana at 12:55pm, and Ohio at 3:50pm.  We finally got to Cincinnati around 5:15 and got to meet my aunt and 4-year-old cousin at the pool where B was finishing his swimming lesson.  We hung out at the pool for a bit, before going to the house to get settled in for the evening. We had delicious burgers for dinner, fresh from the butcher, courtesy of my uncle.  Then we finished off a little birthday cake leftover from my aunt's birthday a few days ago. 

I got to spend the evening catching up with my aunt and uncle and playing with the cutest 4-year-old little boy.  We learned all about the characters from the movie "Cars."  I got to participate in a high-speed race around the train table with "Mr. The King" and "Lightening McQueen."  Unfortunately, I did not win.  After chatting the evening away, we are finally hitting the hay, preparing for another early start and another full day of driving tomorrow.
