Last week Jason and I spent four days in Chicago for Circle, an annual trip for his company. It was a great trip. Chicago is such a nice city and so very clean! There is so much to do there. We got to go to a Cubs game and sit on a rooftop to watch it. So, we were not in Wrigley Field but we were on a rooftop across the street! It was a very cool experience. We also visited Navy Pier and took a Gangster Tour. The tour was about all the "old" (meaning in the 1920's and 30's) gangs of Chicago. It was really interesting and very fun until our charter bus got in an accident. That brought our tour to a halt and as we waited for another bus to come and get us, we missed the last 1.5 hours of the tour. Oh well, everyone was okay! We got to eat wonderful, famous popcorn! Oh it was so good! It was a really fun time!

McKenzie stayed at Nana's house this trip. Tate was also there! Brian and Amber were at the beach with their Youth. So, I am not sure who had more fun, the kids or Nana! McKenzie has asked for Tate everyday since she left him. It is really sweet! They are so cute together and really do love each other so much. It is so fun to have these sweet little ones so close in age!

You ride the elevator to the 103 floor and then get out and look takes 60 seconds to ride the elevator that far!
