Much better today. I spent considerable time studying the map, wandering around, asking questions, and getting a little lost, but not completely lost like yesterday. It helped a lot to realize that this place is similar to Methodist hospital (except this is way bigger) where there are different elevators for Hamilton and Crescent. This place has different elevators for Cascades, Garden, Magnolia, and Delta. We have to take the Magnolia 1 elevator down to the second floor and then switch to the Garden elevators. Today I found out that the Magnolia 2 & 3 elevators don't go all the way through to where our room is. This is our journey to the pool.

|This is how Sarah packed for the trip. She grabbed the clothes off her floor and stuffed them into a suitcase. There are about 4 pairs of pajamas, lots of underwear, and a flashlight. I added a swimsuit and left it alone.|
|Stopped at Green Creek Rest Area somewhere near southern Illinois. It was a beautiful day, and we were tired of sitting, so we played for awhile. Sarah danced, of course.|
|Noah found a bug and made a habitat for it out of his empty snack bag.|

Sarah and I were folding laundry. I had bought Noah a pair of Spiderman underwear at a garage sale earlier in the day. I said to Sarah, "I wonder where Noah's new Spideys are. They should be in the laundry pile..." and Sarah said, "He's wearing them." I asked her how she knew what underwear he was wearing, and she said, "Because we were playing baseball in the garage, and he was batting gansta style." What?! What is that, I wondered. She said, "It's when you pull your pants down to your knees and your underwear shows." Where do they get this stuff?

|Every year I think, "Surely they're too big for the train this year." But they always make a beeline for it.|
|The outhouse makes them laugh EVERY time!|
|They always climb Mt. Tanner....|
|...and roll down.|
|Noah said, "Take a picture of me, Mom. It's probably the last year I'll ride the tire horse."|
|I make him hang out of the porthole of The Mayapple to see how much he's grown since the first pilgrimage.|
