Chicago in Pictures

We were in Chicago for five days over Labor Day to visit Shawn's family and celebrate his mom's birthday. Hope you had a great birthday Ellen. While we were there, the weather was perfect and we took advantage of all opportunities to hang outside. We spent lots of time with Shawn's family and had some lovely dinners and adventures together. On Sunday, we went into the city to check out the jazz festival and play tourist. We took lots of pictures. Unfortunately, that was the only day I took pictures. You would think and "everyday moments" scrapper like me would do better at random everyday vacation and family shots, but nope. I neglected the camera the rest of our trip. Oh well. We did get some good ones in the city.

Here's a few of my favorite pictures:














We should go to Chicago more often in the summer. It was beautiful!

What fun! Sound like the perfect amount of R&R mixed in with some sight seeing. And while it might not be a ton of photos, these are great ... I'm sure they'll find there way into scrap pages very soon!

Nice new wheels, too ... can't wait to see the picture of you new daily best friend :).

Sigh. I love Chicago. We just got back from a mini-weekend and are headed back on Saturday for a birthday party.
