Kevin and Dina's 25th Anniversary
25 years! Wow!
Kevin and I just celebrated our 25th anniversary the 12th of November. We took off last Wednesday (the 5th) and headed on a long weekend out site-seeing. We went to Galena, Illinois first and had a great time there. We looked in the shops, had a nice dinner, enjoyed the Irish Cottage and had a nice time just the two of us.
We then headed on to Chicago. We had the best time there. We walked and walked and walked. Our hotel the Palmer House Hilton was right downtown so we just parked in their parking garage and headed out. We saw Millennium and Grant Park, the Art Institute (I really enjoyed that!), and the Freedom Museum. We shopped along the Magnificent Mile, walked along the lake, and had a great unexpected surprise, we toured Solider Field. For those of you non-football folks, that is where the Chicago Bears play. (Kevin's favorite team since childhood - Go Bears!) We were on the way out of town and decided to make a quick stop at the field to look around. Kevin was walking around as I parked illegally and he started talking to a security guard. He asked if they ever had tours of the field, and the guard said as a matter of fact in 45 minutes a group was going through and we could join them if we wanted. So we went and parked legally and joined the tour. It was great!
Like I said before, wow, 25 years! It sure doesn't seem like we've been married that long. I am so thankful God blessed me with such a loving, caring husband.
