Chicago Toy And Game Fair Trip

About a month ago, I won tickets to the Chicago Toy and Game Fair from Just Another Review Blog! So, today, we are leaving. We're going to drive Route 30 across Indiana. We've never taken this route to Chicago, but all the map sites say it's the quickest from where we live. We're staying at a La Quinta hotel tonight and then will probably ride the MetraRail to Navy Pier tomorrow morning for the fair.

My son is looking forward to playing with a lot of toys. My wife and I are looking forward to being away, spending time together as a family, eating deep dish pizza, and Bubba Gump Shrimp!

It seemse we've been making a lot of spontaneous trips on weekends lately. This is the way I like to travel most! I'd much rather make plans quickly for a short trip than try to plan something months in advance! The best part is that we're making enough progress on our debt snowball that we're finally to a point we can do things like this on occasion by actually budgeting for it!

Have a great weekend everyone!
