I think Alex knew he was at Gram’s house. Instead of sleeping till 7:30 or 8 like he has done the entire trip, he was up and ready to go at 6 am. Mom happily played with him while Wade and I slept a few more hours.
After six hours of driving we reached Chicago and made one quick stop – at the Threadless store. Now we all have new t-shirts.
Now we are back home and I have a baby to put to bed, a car to unload, and laundry to start.
