Wade and I met Judy and Jerry for lunch in Effingham, IL. We transferred Alex’s car seat and said good-bye for a week. (I think Alex was quite ready to have Granny and Pop all to himself.) Then we drove to Peru for the night. We made a quick stop in Bloomington at a chocolate shop for me and ice cream for Wade.
As we were almost to our hotel I suddenly realized I had only packed flip flops. Normally this would be fine except that we were planning to hike tomorrow. We made a stop at the mall and I got an unexpected new pair of tennis shoes and socks. Oops.
