After a three state press (Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois), we landed in Chicago last night. We are staying with Lauren’s dad in Palos Park, IL to rest for a few days. Palos Park is in the western suburbs. Getting there reminded us just how long it takes to get anywhere in Chicago. Just traveling across the city by car takes long enough that, were we in Seattle, we could have reached Olympia and beyond in the same amount of time.

We’re going to relax by Lauren’s father’s pool, and enjoy our favorite deep dish pizza (Giordano’s) tomorrow. We hope that some friends will be stopping by, to enjoy the day with us.

It’s a nice break from being in a seated position, and only eating road food.
