Illini State Park, Marseilles, Illinois.

Errands and Movie Night

Jonathan and I went to Ottawa to see the Boy Scout Museum today but I had my days mixed up and it was closed so we ended up going to the park in the town sqaure for a little while instead. Jonathan tossed coins into the fountain, checked out the cannons then we stopped by Jeremiah Joe's for a few minutes. I had to get my chai while I was in town. Next, we went to the laundromat and took care of that then headed home. Jonathan was a big help. He spent the rest of the afternoon finishing up on his school work.

Tom and Jimmy went out to Starved Rock for dinner tonight so that meant that Jonathan and I had the RV to ourselves for the evening so we had dinner together then watched a movie. He went to bed at 9:00 so he could be rested up real well for tomorrow night. If his cold is better, he gets to spend the night at Leo's so he's excited. Leo doesn't even know we're coming yet so I can't wait to see his face when we arrive at the football game. Should be fun.
