Jul 29, 2010
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.
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.
