N - Chicago Vacation 9/9/2009

We all feel like road warriors this evening. We drove from Chicago to Springfield, MO with really only one stop in Springfield, IL to see the Abraham Lincoln Museum. Below is a picture of the outside. The museum takes you through Abraham Lincoln's life from birth in Indiana to Kentucky to Illinois to his time in Springfield and on to Washington, DC and the White House. Family deaths including his mother and 2 sons not to mention the Civil War really took a toll on him.

Across the street from the museum is the old Union Station. It was a pretty day so we took a family photograph.

Roughly 1,400 miles under our belts and about 280 to go tomorrow. Joel has been a real trooper. He's not lacked in things to do and is usually wiped out at the end of each day. There are few things cuter in my book than our little boy when he's asleep.

Looking forward to seeing some of you this weekend at Sequoyah State Park on Lake Fort Gibson for Ferguson Family Fun and the rest hopefully soon.
