DD17 and I took a road trip to Chicago last weekend (over Valentine's Day). We visited my sister and her family. My brother-in-law is a graduate student and they are living in a 3 bedroom Brownstone apartment so it was a lot different than visiting them in their large home in Indiana. My niece from Iowa was also visiting.
We had deep dish Chicago pizza on Friday evening. On Saturday we spent several hours at the Museum of Science and Industry and then walked along Lake Michigan - it was cold!!!!!! (DD17 didn't enjoy all the walking but she made it - and we were all a little sore the next day). That evening my brother-in-law, nephew and niece made a breakfast supper for Valentine's Day. They made heart pancakes, French toast, bacon and fruit salad. It was all delicious! On Sunday we were lazy and played Wii , read, knitted and I play with my sister's Sizzix die-cut machine. I made a bunch of flowers and other shapes as well as some embossed flowers and brought them home to use in card-making and scrapbooking. (Of course I gained a few pounds - even with all the exercise!)
By Monday I had a full blown head cold - and was looking forward to being home again. I was off work Tuesday as well so just lazed around the house most of that day. It was a fun weekend and a good time of catching up and sharing what's been happening in our lives. At least my cold didn't last too long and I was feeling much better by Wednesday.
