chicago was just delightful. it is beautiful and so clean! i could not believe it. even though it was a short trip, we still got to do a lot of walking and sightseeing.
sunday was marathon day so we all rolled out of bed nice and early to watch dad start the race. here was my view:
there was another marker down the road where we saw him but i didn't get a picture. he had been super sick and is injured so he pulled himself out at the half-way point. i am still so proud of him! i would not have been able to drag myself out of bed if i wasn't feeling well and b) not let myself stop even if i was hurting. i guess that sort of self awareness comes with much experience, haha! the good thing about daddy finishing early was that he was ready to hit the town after a nap!
and no marathon day would be complete without a trip to a brazilian steakhouse where we all eat like we ran a marathon...
the ghost and the darkness for the majority of my life, i loved getting to see the actual lions. if you have never seen the movie, you need to watch it! it is quite an amazing story.
it was a whirlwind of a trip and i can't wait to go back and see more of the city!
