All my bags are packed...I'm a ready to go!

After a fabulous week in Orlando it was time to head to Granger, Indiana to visit Mary and her family for a week! We flew into Chicago and took a train to Granger. We were totally expecting cold weather, but it was in the 50s and 60s all week! We had such a great time just hanging out and taking a vacation from vacation if you know what I mean. Disney was so intense every day, so it was nice to sleep in and hang out. During the week at Mary's Jack started army crawling which quickly led to real crawling and sitting up from a laying position. Since we flew into Chicago we were also flying out of Chicago on Sunday, so for the weekend Brad, Mary and I went to Chicago. We went to the Field Museum and did some shoppping and lots of walking downtown. At the field museum we hung out with Sue(the world's largest, most complete and most famous T. rex), saw a Pirates exhibit which included real pirates treasure, and saw mummies(a couple were unwrapped....amazing how well preserved they were...and a little uncomfortable) I must say Chicago is a really pretty city....soooo very clean too! We ate at a great restaurant for brunch...and boy did we eat! We also had to try Chicago's famous deep dish pizza which was fabulous too! And for all you weary priceline people out there...we pricelined a hotel and go the Hilton for $65 a night right near Millenium Park!
