A week or so we were in Chicago for my grandma’s birthday bash. Everyone from the my mom’s family came in from around the country (CA, MN, MI, NY, VA, & IL). It was the first time we had all rendezvoused since Renee’s wedding in September 2009. We ate, walked, and shopped while we were there. We also took an architecture boat tour on Saturday which I’d recommend if you’re ever in Chicago. It was a great way to see the city and learn a few things… although I didn’t retain much except that the Dark Knight and Transformers were both filmed in the old post office building and while they were filming you could hear explosions throughout downtown Chicago. It was a great weekend.
