Chicago! uhmm minus Obama

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.
