From our Chicago Trip!

On our way to Chicago this summer we stopped off at a State Park.
Here we got in and cooled off in Lake Michigan.
(Sarah was on my shoulders so she wouldn't get her cast wet.)

Once we arrived in Chicago we parked at Soldier Field.
Then we went on our museum visit!
(The addition here is Kristen - our take-along 'nanny'.)

The kids had a great time!
Here they are playing in the submarine display.

While Kristen watched the other three,
Kari, Andrew and I took the 'L' to a Cubs game!

We took in the sites and had a great time
while Kari went to her conference.
This was our final excursion as a whole family,
a boat tour of downtown and of the lake!

PAL Club Champions!

Rachel's team wins the PAL Club Championship!

It was a nail-biter, but we always like those kinds of games.

It kept most everyone's attention.

Daniel loves giving rides to Andrew in his pink Barbie Jeep. Today he added the wagon/trailer option.

Packing up...

the family before the fireworks because of the natural fireworks (lightning). The philharmonic was good though - while it lasted.
