Epic Road Trip-Day Two

I forgot to mention in yesterday's post that we drove a total of 3536 miles on this trip. We got on the road again at 4:15 am and drove a couple of hours before we stopped at Perkins for breakfast. While we were in Iowa, we passed a town called What Cheer. We had a laugh over that one. One of the highlights of the day was our stop at Antique Archeology owned by American Pickers, Mike and Frank.

After a quick stop for lunch at McDonald's we drove until we got to the New Buffalo Rest Stop in Michigan.What a beautiful rest stop! They had a playground for the kids, picnic tables and grills and nice bathrooms. Beautiful shady trees.

We finally reached our destination of Frankenmuth, Michigan about 6:30pm. We got checked in to our room at the Bavarian Inn and went to dinner at Oma's Restaurant in the hotel.. We were pretty exhausted with all the driving so we got to bed about 9:30pm. These were the two hardest driving days of the trip. If I do this again, I will break this up into three days instead of two.
