Chicago (Part 1)

Last weekend Mom, Dad, Mare & I drove
(yes, I said DROVE)
up to Chicago for a wedding.
(We were in the city for 24 hours!! Basically 24 hours of driving for 24 hours in Chicago!!)
It was for my mom's best friend (since she was a teenager) Marcia's son.
It was another weekend FULL of driving...but it was FUN!
I tried to catch up on my Bible reading...
(I have gotten a bit behind schedule the past few weeks!)
I listed to some tunes...and slept...when Sleeping Beauty wasn't hogging the seat!!
I loved passing all the farms, neat old barns and homes, etc. Somehow I didn't end up with any pictures except of the Windmill farm we passed!We got off work early on Friday and made it up to G&G Binkley's in Indianapolis to catch some ZZZ's. Then we got up and going early on Saturday morning and drove into Chicago!!
(I have only been to Chicago once before, and that was to meet Marcia, and two of her daughter's, for a girls weekend. That was also during Taste of Chicago-which was going on again...and will be until 7/4!! I love it...more to come about our 24 hours in Chicago soon!!)I also finished this lovely book over the weekend. I would recommend it for sure! It is a tearjerker, but it is good!!

Can't wait to see more pics of the wedding and Chicago...we're going in August!
I read that book too, and really enjoyed it!!! It took me a while to read it though, it was kind of hard for me to read a lot at time. And yep, I cried!
