We got an early start today, first dropping Lou off with his Grandma Jean for the week, then taking our dogs to their trainer for the week too. After a quick breakfast we undertook the serious drive from IL to MI. Other than a little rain at the beginning and the end of the trip it was an uneventful drive. Tim spent some of the drive taking a nap but was also happy to sing some of his favorite songs along the way - Ring of Fire, Puff the Magic Dragon & Yo Ho, A Pirates Life For Me. Tim also spent some time making his orange playdough into a carrot which he thought his brother would be impressed with.
After spending so many hours on the road and with no planned action tonight we took advantage of a local mall to take a bit of a walk and to let Tim burn off some energy in their play area. After that we hunted down a local Tim Hortons for doughnuts for tomorrow morning (those Canadiens sure do know how to make a mean maple glazed!), checked into the Med Inn and at Tim's request we went out for a sushi dinner. We're finally settling in for the night and hoping to get some good sleep tonight as we've got an early 9AM start for all his pre-op testing.
