Memorial Day in Chicago

Over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, we drove to Chicago to see our family in Western Springs. We had a great time seeing the sights and listening to the sounds of the great city of Chicago. It really is wonderful to have family there so we can visit with them and enjoy the culture of Chicago. Ben and I also had dinner with two of his fraternity brothers (and a girlfriend) who live in Chicago. It was great getting to catch up with them!
