Day 4 - Terre Haute to Rockford, IL & Family!

Reminder: View pics larger by clicking on them!

Off from the friends of Terre Haute to our family in Rockford, IL. As we left Terre Haute we spotted this county building which has one of the tallest domes I have seen on such a small building. It was impossible to catch the entire building because of the other structures around it.
On I-39, from Bloomington, IL to Rockford is a flat stretch of road where prevailing winds are evident almost year round. Also evident are two quite large collections of wind-driven generators creating electricity. I am not sure which power company owns them...perhaps Edison out of Chicago.
Our Rockford family (part of them)....from left Duchess, Son-in-law Jeff, granddaughter Jacalyn, Daughter Nancy and Grandson Garrett Paul.
My mental picture of Jacalyn is a blonde four year old sitting on a booster chair at a computer....The reality is a 16 year old Cheerleader who drives and has a boyfriend!
Youngest grandson Ian Scott has an ear infection, and trouble going to sleep, but a Grandfather's touch is always magic.
As I told the family...It was not magic...I just waited until his Tylenol kicked in
and off to sleep city quickly.

Precious moments for a Grandpa!
