Home Again

We made it back home yesterday at about 7 pm. We started driving at 3:30 am from my cousin's house in a suburb of Chicago. That's a lot of time on the road, but it wasn't too bad.

The whole week was lots of fun, and I'm glad I went along this time. Art and I stayed at a hotel out near O'Hare, but we rode the train into the downtown area a couple times and enjoyed having meals and conversations where we weren't constantly being interrupted. Of course, we missed Zaya and Mim too, but they did very well here with their grandmas and aunts and other family, so we didn't have to worry about them.

I'll try to come up with some detail over the next few days. Suffice it to say that we're home, we're exhausted, but we had a great time, despite all the travel.

(This picture is one I took in downtown Chicago. The skyscrapers there are absolutely huge, and there are so many of them! In the middle of this picture you can see the El, which we took twice from O'Hare to the downtown area and back.)

I'm glad you and Art had a good time. You need some togetherness now and then. One nice thing about long road trips with hubby is the conversation time, it's a good chance to talk.

Very cool picture!!! My parents just bought a condo downtown, so when we go visit, we spend some time out in the suburbs (near Ikea), and sometime downtown. :) It's fun!
