my family finally came...

We've been living here in Batavia for about 18 months and my family finally made the trip up. It was a great weekend too...

My mom, dad and sister flew up from Columbus, Ohio, which was a pretty big deal because my mom had never been on an airplane before. But she seemed to handle it fine while complaining that the landing was bumpy... But I'm thinking, "If you've never flown before, how do you know what a bumpy landing is like?"

On Saturday we went into Chicago... visited Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier and the Magnificent Mile. We had dinner at Bubba Gump's on the Pier. All in all, it was a great weekend. They flew back on Monday...

Here are a few photos of the weekend:

The weather was beautiful... it couldn't have been a better day.

Here's the whole family at Navy Pier on the USS Chicago Anchor:

Here's Mom, Dad, Addy and Jackie hanging out at the end of the pier:

We enjoyed a great dinner at Bubba Gumps:

And I took this picture off the end of the pier and just liked it... so I thought I'd post it too...

All together... it was a great weekend. And I'm glad they finally came to visit us...
