Princeton, Illinois

Our next stop was to Princeton, Illinois to visit with Nicks other grandparents from his mothers side. We had a great week visit with them in their little city of 7,700. We cooked a lot, ate a lot, relaxed a lot, and helped them out with chores. We really enjoyed our time with them and being spoiled by them. It is nice to know that we will have family as close as 200 miles away once we are settled at Purdue, our next visit with them will be for Thanksgiving.

 We enjoyed some MidWest food staples already: Taco pizza (which is as common as Pepperoni), Giardiniera style peppers (great on hot dogs, pizza, and sandwiches), and we also enjoyed some fried chicken from a local family run restaurant. Lastly, another great perk of being in Illinois, you can buy Chicago Bears merchandise for cheap and from pretty much any department store, we were able to get me my own Bears jersey and Nick a new Bears hat for a total less than $30 :)
