The Final Days

Sorry it has taken me so long to finish the posts about my parents visits!  So let's wrap this up because I have so many other posts to catch up on as well. :) 
On Tuesday morning we woke up and made the drive to Shipshewana (a local Amish town).  The drive was beautiful with Fall being at it's peak.  It was fun to see all the little buggies and the flea market.  We also ate lunch at this restaurant that had been recommended for having amazing fried chicken.  They had amazing fried chicken!!  Oh and the cream pies?  To die for.

We spent the evening relaxing and eating more delicious food and desserts.

On Wednesday we slept in.  We had a yummy breakfast and then headed to Notre Dame to hit up the bookstore for some souvenirs.  We were planning to go on a campus tour, but it was chucking rain, so we went out to lunch instead at Red Lobster. :)  Yum.  Then we came home to get ready to take mom and dad to the airport. :(  Their flight was delayed and they would miss their connecting flight, so they ALMOST got to spend another night with us, but they found a flight with another airline just in time to make it back for work the next day - BOO!  :)  We sure loved having them come and visit and welcome all visitors to South Bend!!
