Since my husband has no vacation time this summer and my good friend is divorced, she and I decided we are heading out on a Moms & Kids camping trip in early August. Our destination....the Great Lakes. Yup....all of them if we can! I've seen most when I was a kid, but other than work trips to Chicago, never seen a one since. Let me just start by saying that I'm very blessed with awesome car travelers in my sons. My husband and I have fostered this because when each of us were growing up with both did tons of car trips with our parents, including trips across the whole U.S.
So our crazy little gang with be me, my two boys (7 & 4) and my friend Melanie and her girls (7 & 5). Our kids get along great.
Since I am totally unfamiliar with this area of the U.S. I'd love any input you can provide. Any "must sees" along the way? We both believe in if we get some place the kids love, we'll just stay longer and adjust accordingly. We really hope to get to Madison, WI because I do have some friends there, and I've just heard it's a cool city so I want to check it out. I love Chicago so that must stay on my list and I've NEVER been to Toronto so that's staying too.
