Today the 5 Adventurers drove Jeremy Picklepants south about 100 miles to Lemont, IL. It is a charming town in the greater Chicago area and the home of one of Brian’s good friends from college and her daughter.
They have a gorgeous house originally built in the 1880’s and so many board games tjat the kids hardly know what to do with themselves. The homemade cookies baking in the oven when we arrived added to the warm welcome.
We took a little walk around town in the crisp fall sunshine and saw the old I&M canal which is now a recreation area.
Brian and Tiffany both grew up in the Midwest so it has been very pleasant to see Autumn leaves and to feel 55° weather (13°C).
Dinner was Chicago style pizza, candy corn for dessert and a driving tour of more Halloween decorations to round out the day.
