Vacation Day 10

Friday, July 9, 2010: We didn’t get up until about 9:00 this morning. We had a $20 breakfast coupon to use again at Bennigan’s so that’s where we ate before getting on the road. Bruce wanted to go back into Iowa (Davenport) to look in the souvenir shop at the minor league ball team there, which is an affiliate of the Cardinals. We then headed for home. We stopped in Lincoln for gas and snacks and again in Springfield so I could get a Jimmy John’s sub (yummo!) for lunch, which was more like a mid-afternoon meal. We arrived home at about 3:00pm and unloaded the car before the girls and I went to get Shinza from the boarding place. She was happy to see us! We are now unpacking and doing laundry. It is good to be home!

New states for B1 on this trip: South Dakota and Wyoming. I think she has now been in about 30 states.

New state for B2 on this trip: Kansas, South Dakota, and Wyoming. She has now been in the same number of states as B1.

We always keep track of the license plates we see while on vacation and I believe we saw more this time than any other. We saw license plates for every state in our union except Delaware, Rhode Island, and Hawaii. We also did not see the District of Columbia (Washington, DC.) plate. We also saw plates for 4 provinces (Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan).

We put 2780 miles on the Honda Pilot this trip, which is an average of about 278 miles a day! WOW!

It's only about 6 or so months now until I can make our Disney dining reservations for VACATION 2011. Yep - I'm a little excited about it!

I will post pictures from each day of our trip as I get the time here in the next couple of weeks.

We honestly thought about it, Dan, but at that point, we were anxious to get home. Plus, it was the middle of the day and I'm sure Mary would have been at work.
