Back from Chicago!

WOW! It was so much fun spending some time with Jons family in Chicago! We had a lot of great things to do. Friday we went chopping and my hubby took me to Archivers...a really cool scrapbook store and I spent too much money! But I got some great deals on some great things and I can't wait to play! On Saturday Jen and Mark (bil & sil) took us to the museum of science and technology! It is a great hands on and interactive museum that the kids had a wonderful time at! Thanks guys for setting it up!

Here are the boys at the Chick hatchery...

and the Navy exhibits

Cody with his Aunt Jen looking through a periscope

and Tylers turn

Can you believe the smile?

Here is Ty with his Papa

Here are our boys at the great Train story exhibit

Here is my hubby & I having a little fun

We also took the boys to have their photo taken in an old car with some hats on...I snapped a couple of photos when she wasn't looking

Here are our boys at the Circus exhibit

and with their cousin

The boys favorite part was the flight simulator...they got to fly a jet and shoot down enemies....we were able to watch on a tv screen outside...

Here is Papa...Ty is there but you can't really see him

Here is Cody and Justin

And here they are in the simulator...do you think their smiles give away what a good time they had?

And here they are climbing a rock wall

It was a fabulous way to spend our Saturday!

Tomorrow I will upload some more photos from the rest of our weekend!

Thanks again for setting it up Jen & Mark and to Nana and Papa for treating the family to such an amazing time!

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? Tyler was sick again, poor little guy ran a fever from between 101 and 102.6 since Friday morning! He felt awful....we went to the hospital Friday night and pretty much heard what I expected...its viral and keep up with the Tylenol and Motrin and he'll get better...well by today with little sleep and his fever at 102.5 we went back...got a different doctor that said yes it is viral but we will give him some antibiotics! Thank goodness he is already feeling better with just a few doses!

On Saturday we had a snow storm and over at Scrapbook Heaven we had an impromptu on line crop...Michelle was a great hostess and I even got to post a challenge! I even got a couple of layouts done...yeah for me!

This is my sister in law when she was a little girl on her first birthday...it was for the scraplift challenge (thanks Michelle for the layout to lift)

This was for the summer challenge!...Again this is my sister in law when she was little

Well have a great evening!
