We drove and drove and drove. Well, Dad did. Cam and I napped pretty much the whole way. I did catch some highlights out the window like this:
That's Kauffman Stadium - home of the Kansas City Royals! They are a baseball team Mom likes to
We kept driving. And driving. And napping. I eventually saw this:
|The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge, St. Louis, MO|
We were going over the mighty Mississippi River! Wow. AND it meant we were in Illinois! I'd never been to Illinois. Cam said she wasn't sure if she had been or not. But anyway - Illinois! Land of Lincoln!
I guess in keeping with the whole "Lincoln" theme, we stayed in a log cabin, as you saw yesterday.
This was our first look at it:
Our place was the small cottage on the left.
The family who owns it lives across that covered deck, in the main house. They were very nice people!
Let's head inside!
I was very interested in this huge fireplace:
It was in the 90s outside, so no fire. It was fun going behind that quilt hanging there, though! Mom used my full name a lot when I did that. Interesting.
The cabin had a little table and chairs:
Sorry I'm out of focus; it was a bit dark in the cabin.
Mom and Dad packed our beds and even brought Buckingham Palace along so we'd feel at home. Cam really appreciated having both! As for me ...

Anyway, more on our visit tomorrow!
