Earlier this month, David had his LPL conference in Chicago and we were able to go. Hayden didn't come this year. We were sort of hoping that he would have a J-O-B. So, since it was just the two of us, we went to a White Sox game, the Shedd Aquarium, the play "Wicked" (WONDERFUL and so very POPULAR), the Areonatics museum and took some pictures on ginormous farm equipment (for Caleb :)) shopped the "miracle mile" shops, and walked to the Navy Pier. The Pier used to be the home of the University of Illinois before it became a boardwalk/carnival tourist attraction. Fun, fun and more fun. David did attend his conference during the day, while I read all the Twighlit saga books. We went to hear Ted Koppel speak and I will be a good Christian and not say anything bad like my mom taught me even though I'd really like to rant! Anyway, this is waaaayyy more wordy than I thought.

Here are a couple of pics from our recent trip to Chicago. The "where'd ya get those eyes!" are from the Shedd Aquarium. A Planet Earth 4-D video was the ultimate experience. The other is at the Navy Pier. We walked from the Downtown Marriott where we were staying to the pier. It was a beautiful day and in honor of Elder Dixon we even ate a funnel cake! It was calorie and nutrient free... Enjoy.

Okay I admit it I really hate the computer more often than not!!! Maybe because I am a complete idiot when it comes to this stuff. So go ahead a hold your breath. It may take me a century to figure out how to add pictures (that fit) onto this blog. Grumble, grumble, grumble.
