Vacation Pictures

July 25, 2011

Here are the pictures I owe you from the last several days! We just got back from vacation in Northwest Indiana and Chicago.

While we were in the area, we went to visit my Great Aunt Helen (my maternal grandmother’s sister). Her house neighbors my grandparents former home on the Tippecanoe River. It was nice to be back on the river, even just for an hour.

 

On Thursday, we went to Indiana Beach (you know, there’s more than corn in Indiana). We spent most of very hot day at the water park, but we did play video games, walk through the haunted house and catch the ski show on the boardwalk.

We spent Friday at Indiana Dunes State Park. It was hot, sunny and sandy, of course!

 

On Saturday, we met up with Jeff and Stefanie and our favorite neighbor Wayne and his fiance Christina. We drove into Chicago and spent the early afternoon at the Field Museum.

 

 

After the museum, we took cabs to Giordanos on Michigan Avenue and had Deep Dish Pizza. We then took cabs back to the Field Museum parking garage and headed to Toyota Park.

 

We went to see Jimmy Buffett on Saturday night at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL (south of Chicago). It was so much fun!

We are grateful for the hospitality that Dad and Carol offered us that allowed us to come and go, eat delicious food and have a great time. We had a wonderful vacation!
