Short (But Sweet) Trip

Well, I'm back from Chicago and we had an AWESOME time! Sue and I spent the weekend at David and Karie's. Eric and Alysia were there, too. I absolutely adore the two sisters-in-law, whom I've met, and I'm sure I'll love Tiffani when I have the opportunity to meet her, as well. Saturday afternoon we made a trip to Lisle, IL to visit my Uncle Len and Aunt Gail for a cookout. The hospitality and the food were fabulous and there was never a second when I didn't feel like family. I was also able to meet my cousin (second cousin, I believe), Bob and his wife, Lynn. After dinner, we all moved to the living room where David, Bob, and Uncle Len entertained us by playing the guitar and banjo and singing. I enjoyed talking to everyone SO much and really wasn't ready to leave when it was time to go. David cooked breakfast for us on Saturday and Sunday and he is an excellent cook. I also met my Nephew, Caleb, and he is SUCH a cutie! It was just a great weekend filled with fun and family. I am so blessed!

Here is a link to pictures from the weekend. Some of them were taken without a flash because I was trying to "sneak" them, so they're pretty grainy. Most of them turned out okay, though.

If you would like copies of any of the photos, please e-mail me at and I'll print them and mail them to you. Please indicate which photos you'd like to have. You can also order them through my Kodak gallery. TTFN!

Hi Sweetie - it's me, Momma Sue. Actually, Bob is your "first great cousin". He is your grandfather's (my dad) brother's son - or your grandfather's nephew. He is my cousin, which would make him your great cousin.
