I'm back!

Hi there everyone.  I am back!!! after two and a half weeks in one of my favourite places - Chicago!
We spent time visiting our old neighbourhood, showing the boys places we used to bring them, visited best friends in their lake house in Michigan and had one of the most memorable weekends of fun and frolics.  My boys thought it was "the best".
We watched the Chicago Air and Water Show.
We visited the Shedd Aquarium.
The "Jellies" exhibition was amazing.
and of course... we had to visit Wrigley Field and support the Cubs.
and I took lots of photos! (my reflection taken in the "Bean" in Millennium Park, Chicago).

We had such an amazing vacation - hope to post some more photos, but for now want to try and catch up with things in blogland and the laundry!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and special thanks to Lin, Barb, Wendy, Elizabeth, Donna, Simone, Alexandra, Jane, Joey, Anne, Dawn, Virginia, Ger, Jessie, Yvette, Chelsea, Ren-Yi, Tiffany, Maggie, Kathy, Emma, Sally, Sheila, Judy, Heather and Petti for leaving sweet comments on my posts while I was away - I really appreciate them all.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great week.
