Chicago day 1

Ok technically we're on day 4 of our Chicago trip, but it's the first opportunity I have had to get online long enough to update my blog. These kiddos have kept me so busy and with John in meetings most of the day, it's just me. So I think I'm going to start with day 1 and try to catch up that way. lol
Saturday we went to Indiana Dunes and spent the day. SO FUN! Lots of firsts that day. All the kids first time being at a Great Lake and first time being at a "lake beach". They have never been to a sandy shored lake. They LOVED it. They couldn't believe how much it looks like the ocean! It was a great day and I wish we had time to go back before heading home on Friday.

The cup is as big as Kemry! LOL

Walk like a sea gull
Daddy I want to come to you but it's tooooo scary

Always running
skipping rocks

She nearly fell asleep here

The water was way colder than the beaches we go to. LOL
