This past weekend Rick and I drove to Chicago to see Joel and Elda. Since Hannah's family lives near Chicago, she drove out with us, and it was so nice to have her company. We had a wonderful time with everyone, and it's nice to be close enough to be able to head that way now and then. Here are a few pictures from our adventures.

|I tried playing with shutter speed on our camera, and I took|
this through my sunglasses - I like how it turned out!

|Lake Michigan after the rain|
|Rick and me at Millennium Park|
|Another downtown water feature|
|The Hard Rock Hotel and water spray from|
|This is where Elda will be singing in a |
chorus this fall
|Yet another lovely water feature|
|Storm clouds behind Buckingham Fountain|
|"Queso" flavored ice cream - we did not dare to try it. The fact|
that it has chunks of Kraft cheese in it really grossed us out.
|My attempt to catch the "Welcome to Ohio" sign|
|More fun with shutter speed - I like the colors!|
