IKEA... where we sent most of our day.  After a yummy breakfast

Homewood Suites' Waffles

we were going to let the kids swim but the pool was outside so that didn't happen with all the rain/storms during the night.

We looked, thought, picked out lots of stuff, had lunch,

Ikea Chocolate Cake

(The remains of dessert.  Everyone loved the chocolate cake.)

and finally paid the bill.  Yikes!  It took Mickey about 45 minutes to get everything loaded either in or on top of the Jeep.  (I entertained the kids with ice cream cones and a visit to the bathroom.)  We took 294 home instead of 80-90 hoping it would be faster.  It was, at least faster than the previous day.  There was one area of congestion, but it wasn't too bad.  With all the rain last night an exit was closed due to standing water.

Closed Exit

I wonder if the Jeep could have made it through.

We got home just in time for the kids to shower, snack, and go to bed.  Mickey and I both had work to prep for tomorrow.

We had a nice little trip together.  But I think next time we go to IKEA Mickey and I are going alone.
