A few shots of our trip--traveling with 6 kids, our wonderful hosts, and Sunday on campus:
|Did you know a single person cannot buy 8|
airline tickets at once...?????
Flying with 6 kids...but no BABY...was so easy!!! Each person had a backpack and a pull-behind, even Celeste. With inflight entertainment (movies) and lots of special snacks, everyone was happy. Marcus knew how to navigate O'Hare and get us to the car rental, and we had an amazing Ford Transit van (15-passenger, but with the back bench removed for luggage). Easy peasy!!!
|Bob and Linda's home in South Bend|
We stayed with Bob and Linda, family friends (Marcus' mom went to nursing school in South Bend with Linda). They are SOOOOO generous! I think I gained 5 pounds in this one weekend. :o)
|We all slept in their spacious basement|
We arrived Friday night, then of course spent Saturday on campus. On Sunday we went back to campus for Mass at the Basilica and for a trip to the bookstore.

This ended our time at Notre Dame, but our midwest adventures were only beginning....
