A few weeks ago my mom came out and stayed with us for a few days which was just what we needed. It was great having her here and gave us an excuse to get out and do some fun things. We did the usual shopping, eating, Kopps custard, etc. We also took a day trip to Chicago because she had never been there before. David and I had never been to Navy Pier either so we strolled around there for awhile, climbed up the Hancock Building (by elevator!) ate yummy deep-dish pizza and just walked around the city. It was wonderful having her here and for any of you thinking about a little vacation spot we're always happy to have visitors!
