August Chicago Trip!

Taking the entire summer off from teaching has been amazing. I have only done it once before and it was because Terry and I were getting married that summer. We have had time to get things done around the house, relax, play with the pups, and travel. These are some pictures from our trip to Chicago to see my family and to watch the White Sox vs. Angels series. Although the Angels only went one for three, it was still an amazing and unforgettable trip.

Mom and I in the backyard before the BBQ she hosted so I could see some of my family and friends.

Terry somehow got the camera, this is a typical shot!

Dad and I before the BBQ.

Crazy Cousin Bud and Terry at Joe Daniels Bar, we went there to watch Wednesday's game.

Dad and I at JD's shortly before a festive yelling match about baseball broke out between us.

My cousin Kathy and I, she JUST had a baby! I hope I bounce back like that some day!
