Meadow was on spring break. Our original plans was to go to Mexico. Since we don't have passports and our plans to drive a camper van into Baja fell through we substituted for the cottage. That's after our plans to go to Chicago for the weekend also fell through.
We left Thursday after I got out of work. Almost halfway along the rain turned to snow. The roads weren't bad, but the snow was so thick and it was foggy that we could barely see the road.
It was like Star Wars hyperspace bad.
We were going at most 30 mph. It was getting late and we knew it would take us at least 3 more hours to get there. We decided to stop at a hotel right off the highway near Prentice.
Meadow thought this place was great. She especially loved the bedding. This motel was so basic they didn't even have a crib for Theo. We all slept pretty well, but Meadow wasn't happy that we had to leave.
Cheap motel family photo. All packed up and ready to finish the short drive to the cottage.
