Mom and Dad with their eldest on the edge of Lake Michigan. This is the first time we've ever done a "family" trip without my little sister. Weird, huh? We missed her.
Our trip to Chicago. Mom doesn't want to go to museums, and neither she nor i could do MUCH walking. So we hung pretty close to Millennium Park. The giant bean was the coolest thing for sure. Though i've never seen Chicago this crowded - ever. Maybe it was the AIDS walk or just the fact that it was a beautiful weekend and the Illinoians are anticipating another harsh winter here.
Mom and i holding up the bean! I think it's funny that dad was sweet enough to cut off my roll-about in this picture - and you can see it in the reflection! Ha! Quite honestly, i was quite a popular attraction in downtown Chicago that day!
Looking at Chicago from the edge of the lake.
Landon looks so hot in this picture. I look pretty strange - he must have been snapping my bra or something. He does look pretty devious.
Between the two of us, we have a $850 pair of boots!
On Friday mom and i went shopping and Landon took Dad out on the canoe to the Des Plaines river. They went on a run that usually takes landon and i 3 hours and did it in 90 minutes! But i guess Dad's a pretty ambitious paddler. I just sit on the canoe and enjoy the ride until landon tells me to paddle on one side or the other. that probably makes a big difference.

Other things not pictured: Friday i played for them at starbucks. Afterward we had drinks and appetizers at Olive Garden. Saturday we finished our fun evening with a trip to visit Landon at Erehwon and then the 4 of us went out to dinner in this cute town known for its restaurants. We went to a great little French restaurant called Froggy's. Sunday morning we ate breakfast at Wildberry, a great breakfast place i've always wanted to try! The 2 1/2 days they were here were PACKED with stuff - we were very busy and our weekend went by so quickly! It was great to have them here and i miss them! Thanks for the visit, mom and dad!
