Mark's brother Phil, Aunt Jill, Luke and Andrew came for a visit last month. We're having all of Mark's family at different times this summer come to visit, so we are "staycationing" and we are having a lot of fun. Really, this area seems to have so much to offer the opportunities are endless! Of course, you would need and endless supply of money as well :) We had so much fun with them and made lots of good memories.
A day at the beach? No - just a great park about 5 minutes away with a huge sand pit. We always have to strip the girls before we get in the car after playing here.
Playing in the Millenium Park water fountain downtown. Anna threw up in her sleep the night before, so Anna and I stayed home. They took the train and had a great time exploring Chicago.
We went to the local children's museum which is a favorite during the winter time or on rainy days. Here is Hope shopping in the pretend grocery store. She is so intense. They also let kids paint their own faces there, which is why she has black all on her face.
