This past weekend, my mom and I went to visit my sister and her family in Chicago. We had an amazing time exploring downtown Chicago and getting to see my sister and brother-in-law's new house! I snapped quite a few photos that I'll post later in the week, but for now I attached a little video I put together of the trip. I'm no movie maker, but since iMovie makes it so easy to add a song to video and pictures, I thought I'd give it a whirl.
Some highlights of the trip:
--> Trying to take in the sights of downtown Chicago among the swarms of the 2 million Blackhawk fans who were there for the parade on Friday. I'm not one for huge crowds, so this was definitely an experience.
--> Getting to see the gorgeous turquoise blue water of Lake Michigan from my sister's office building. Seriously, it looks like the Caribbean! I guess it's all those zebra mollusks filtering the water. Maybe not too good for the fish ecosystem, but it sure is pretty.
--> Heading in to the city on Saturday night to go see She and Him! The concert was way more awesome that I could have ever imagined. More on that later...
--> Getting some girl time in as my sister, mom, and I ate lunch on the beach.
--> Exploring their new house
--> Listening to my niece sing Disney songs over and over--I couldn't get enough of her cute little voice, and she really did know all the words.
--> Just hanging out and watching TV together like the old days
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
