We headed to Chicago this past weekend so that my husband could remodel our only full bathroom. This way we could still have access to water at grandma's house. The next several posts will be about the events surrounding our trip. I took lots of pictures and sent them to Daddy throughout our trip, so that he wouldn't miss us too much.
Before hitting the road for Chicago, M's school was having a Spring Festival. It was a great opportunity for the kids to run off some energy before hitting the road. The festival featured various activity stations: coloring book area, tattoos, balloons, crown and mask crafts, and ball toss games.

M was so excited to hold Wonder Red's hand. In this photo, she was trying to ask Wonder Red to skate around.
After an hour or so, we hit to road, crowns and balloons in tow:
