38. Kokomo, IN to Chicago, IL; February 2 – 6, 2015

The Friday after New Year’s Day, we drove down to Costco in Indianapolis.  It was still early when we left Costco and cold enough that we could keep the refrigerated items in the van if we parked awhile.

We threw caution to the wind and drove down to Vincennes, Indiana to visit the William Henry Harrison House, Grouseland.

We were the only visitors to our 9th president’s house.  We learned about Old Tippecanoe and his 31 days in office.  We got a picture in front of the house and went looking for a late lunch.

That’s our van in front of the house.  The docents were excited for visitors.

On our way out of town, we noticed a sign for the George Rogers Clark National Historic Park.  We drove there instead of getting food.

We saw the beautiful memorial and learned that the Revolutionary War made it all the way out to Indiana.  We spent an hour or so running on the grounds, but had no juice left in our phones for pictures.

We left, found a Chili’s to eat at, and headed home, ready for the weekend.

Toward the end of January, we continued exploring Indiana.  We took a quick trip to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  We toured the museum and then road the bus around the track.

As we exited the bus, Zach asked the driver if we had won.

Kris and the kids joined me on the next Chicago work trip.  We left after a major snowstorm hit the area.  The roads were clear and the drive was beautiful.

While I trudged through the snow to various law schools, Kris and the kids stayed in the hotel room.

Anna was potty training in earnest, earning quality toys for performing, like a toothbrush for her doll.

We ventured out for some Chicago pizza, enjoying pizzeria uno for the first time.  And we got snowed on some more.

Four nights in a hotel and it was time to get home.  Time to play in the snow.
