I worked out rides home for the kids after school.  My dad was scheduled to be at our house when the kids arrived.  Mickey and I left around 7:45 a.m. for a trip to the Chicago Temple.  We'd been talking about going on a school day, which should be much easier than a Saturday, for a while but never got around to scheduling it.

When we go on road trips, usually to Chicago, the weather does not always cooperate.  Today was no exception.  There was some rain and a little snow.  Nothing too bad but it was still a little annoying.  It was kind of weird.  To the north, the sky was very dark with some serious cloud coverage.  To the south, the sky was blue and mostly clear.  One minute it was raining/snowing and the next it let up some and we saw this.
Rainbow over the Toll Road 
Actually we saw more than one rainbow.  This just happened to be the best picture.  Twice we saw two different double rainbows.  That made the trip a little more enjoyable.

It was lovely to spend some quiet time with Mickey and be in the temple doing work for our family members.  On the way home we had to stop at IKEA.  Mickey said it was probably the cheapest trip we've ever had.
