day 5 east:  minnesota sunrise

This was taken outside of Albert Lea, MN, before we headed south through Iowa to hit the interstate.

This was taken right before my morning nap.

We continued on through Illinois and Indiana.

South Bend, Indiana was the Night of the Hockey Teams at the Hampton Inn.  I should write to that Hampton Inn to tell them what a great job they did.  And those who organized that tournament?  Despite the high spirits, pizza and a zillion 11 year old boys, the party was over at 10 PM.  Really.  It was as if someone pulled the plug.

The next morning at 6:30 we walked across the chips-covered carpet through a quiet lobby.

Impressive.  Especially if you’ve ever chaperoned fifth grade boys.
