Road Trip Stage Three: IA, IL, IN

Saying Goodbye to Gma C
The fun continued as we approached our easternmost point. Great visit (a little busy, but great nonetheless) with Grandma Christine in Illinois.

Speaking of state names, here's a look at our route:

Had fun indoors, and outdoors.

At a pleasantly rainy Moraine Hills State Park:

Little touch of home :)

Also enjoyed a couple of nice visits with Franklin's great aunt Dorothy:

Then we were off south to Indiana. Of course, we had to swing through Franklin, IN. Missed the welcome sign, but this is a pretty good alternate:

Almost as soon as we arrived at Brown County State Park for the Campbell family reunion, Braxton began his weekend full of hugs for Franklin:

Great to see other cousins (and second cousins, and third cousins!) too.
Matthew, Amelia, Franklin, and Braxton.

Evan and Franklin might be too close in age to have much to say to each other for now, but at least they can exchange book recommendations :)

And Shelley was nice enough to drive down to Nashville, IN to hang out for a couple of hours.

After all the excitement, we were grateful to have the chance to relax a bit at Nana and Papa's place:
