Chicago - Spring Break '12

Friday afternoon, finished with work, loaded the car and headed out of town. What an excitement, a freedom. No work or school for 9 wonderful days.

We headed to the Chicagoland area to visit Kris and Melinda.

We made a short stop at the VR's to drop off Frank. What a wonderful sister, to say she would watch our hpyer puppy for us. He is so not ready to go to the kennel yet!

We took the train into Chicago, and had a wonderful day walking the streets of downtown Chicago. With tired feet, legs, back, everything, we made our way back to the train station. 7 hours of walking, shopping, standing, eating. What a fun day! The train ride was a little quieter on the way home.

We had such a nice time visiting Kris and Melinda. We laughed until our sides ached, visited for hours on end, and got to see their new house all fixed up and see them in their new town.

Back to the VR's.  Got to see Logan's new jeep (very nice, said with accent) shot guns with Travis, and visited with grandma and Kim and Kenny.
