Where to begin???

WE HAVE VISITORS!!!!David's sister and grandmother are staying with us for a few days and we have already had so much fun. We decided to hit up the Germanfest on Friday because afterall this is the city of festivals. All I have to say is that I'm glad David and Shawna got in free and that some "midwestern woman" gave Summer and I "buy one get one" tickets. It was fun to do something different but definitely NOT worth full price in my opinion. See for yourself....

I guess this little piggy went to the festival!

Saturday we hit up Chi-town but FIRST we went to the most amazing house ever....David and I had been there a time or two but always at night so we made it clear that we were going there first thing. In all honesty I WANT to move into this house SSOOOO bad. The neighborhood is awesome, and the house...come on who wouldn't want this house??? Which btw is totally the same as it is in the movie (believe me David did a play by play until like midnight) Anyway here I am encouraging the "screamer" face....

oh my turn....

I LOVE THIS HOUSE!!!! For those of you who don't know what this is, shame on you.



We decided to take a bus tour around Chicago which was the best thing. It was nice to learn a little about the sites we had always seen.

NBC Building



Wrigley Building (this is my favorite building)



AAHHH Wisconsin...too bad I hate cheese. Oh yeah this place was closed at 7 pm on a Saturday. Who does that???

We have always passed "Apple Holla" on the way to Chicago and decided to pull over and see what all the fuss was about. We were there right at closing but I was pretty impressed with it. It's a little run down but something was cute...not sure what...roaming goats? No that wasn't very cute. Anyway I wasn't tall enough to fit my head in the hole (go figure) so David was actually holding me up...hence the arm around the neck.

Looks like fun, so what's that house? I apologize for being so clueless and curious!

The only thing I can think of is "Home Alone". I don't remember all those trees though. Is that right, or is it really from a scary movie?

David and Jodee said...

Jod, I didn't know the house either! Sorry. I figured for you to be so excited it would've been Full House. But that's in Cali, right? Anyways, I LOVE the pictures. I laughed out loud on the one where you and Dave are in the cut outs! :)

Oh yeah we hit up the Full House house when we were on our honeymoon. Do you really think I would let that one slip?

Kat & Steve said...

Is the REALLY the Home Alone House? I wouldn't mind living there either. We just need to quadruple our income first.

MARS cheese castle you're kidding me! I've been begging Ryan to pull off there literally everytime we went to Chicago, but not once did we! It's too darn bad they were closed at least I'd have a second hand glimpse into the wonderful world of cheese. Shame on you for blaspheming cheese that way. Who doesn't love cheese??
