Our first stop on our Midwest trip was to Hoople, Illinois, out west of Chicago near Iowa between I-88 and I-80.
We stayed with Bree's grandparents Mable and Byron. Since they live just down the road, we got to see Uncle Stan, his wife Luanne, and their kids Jared, Derek, and Katia quite a bit. Bree's other aunt Janet and her husband Terry were able to stop by as well.
We'd been hoping that Bree's dad would be able to make it up for this part of the journey, but his work schedule didn't fit right, so we ended up seeing him in our evanston segment.
