I’d never been to Chicago. I’d never really been anywhere in the mid-west, or middle earth as I like to refer to it. To be honest, I’ve always liked to stick to the coasts in the U.S.. While I still hold that West Coast=Best Coast, Chicago was Lovely. T and I are already planning a visit back to do some more exploring of Chicago and its great surrounding areas.
First things first though, I love my extended family, many of which live in the surrounding areas of Chicago. They very graciously hosted us for a multi day reunion extravaganza. I only see my extended family on my dad’s side every three years or so, and it is a hoot when we all get together. This post is for them.
Most days we gathered outside, eating, playing volleyball, playing in the grass with the kiddos, and chatting. Perfect summer days.
The kid’s kept us all entertained, and gave me a good workout chasing after them.
I miss all these dear faces greatly and I’m counting down the days/years until I see them again.
