Day 2 – Schaumberg, Illinois

After saying farewell to our friends, we went to Campbell Baptist Church in Windsor this morning. The people there were very friendly and it was great to worship God together. By 1 pm we were on the road, crossed the Ambassador Bridge to Detroit and across the border. About 6 hours later, after slowing down to pay at 4 different toll booths and a half hour of slow, heavy traffic through Chicago (who knew Sunday afternoon would have rush hour - at least we're not shocked anymore after living in Toronto!) we arrived in Schaumberg, a little north west of Chicago for the night. We're working on the kids not asking “How much longer?” and "Are we there yet?" - Jeremy is still having trouble! The hotel is right across the street from LEGO Discovery Center, our first stop tomorrow morning after our continental breakfast and swim in the pool! Nathan read about the Discovery Center in a LEGO book from the library and wanted to go so we planned it into our trip. I'll post some pictures of it tomorrow!
