Midwest Odyssey Part 1

My friend Gloria is having a giveaway for her 100th blog post. I wonder how long it will take me to get to 100 blog posts, I better get busy. We returned late Tuesday from our midwest odyssey. We have two super duper travelers, Orla and Elvie both of whom needed equal number of pee stops, the pink potty travels well. I am downloading pictures as I write. Our first stop was Tinley Park to Grandma, PopPop and Aunt Kathy's house.


Orla's second ride on the carousel. I rode with her a third time, screaming because she didn't get to ride the frog. She still thinks about that frog.


Orla, PopPop, and I on the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier.

Downtown from the Ferris Wheel.

Oberweis, has super delicious ice cream! Awesome picture of Kevin, Elvie hoping for a bit of icecream, Aunt Kathy and Orla eating her own ice cream as well as daddy's.

Orla had so much fun with her grand parents and cousins. Kevin and I went to see the Hangover, a super funny movie, then to Sanfratello's for pizza. Kevin says a good Chicago pizza place has to end in o's. Sanfratello's, Aurelio's, Giordono's they are all our favorites.

Wisconsin will be part 2.

Sounds like you guys had a great time. Orla a girl after my own heart, I love frogs too they are much better than a prince!

Tom and I saw the Hangover a few weeks ago and we laughed through the hold thing..the missing tooth just cracked me up..!

What fun! Not riding on the frog can be a HUGE deal you know. :) Funny what means the most to the little ones. Looks like Orla was enjoying the ice cream alot!
