Family Reunion 2008

My sister Fran lives in Chicago, so we drove for 14 hours (more like my parents drove) to spend the day with her (and to also meet the boyfriend) and my other sister Jackie and her family. We had a great time checking out Navy Pier - here we are on the huge Ferris Wheel.

Chris and Gavyn taking pictures at the "Bean" in Millenium Park before we head over to eat some Chicago stuffed pizza at Giordano's! YUM!!! After dinner we walked/shopped on Michigan Avenue and then it was back in the van to head to Davenport, IA to meet up with the rest of the family!
You can't go to the Davenport area with out stopping at the John Deere Museum in nearby Moline, IL. There were HUGE tractors the kids could climb in and pretend to drive. Here is a picture of Mikah and his cousins Grace and Hannah.
After the musuem we headed to my mom's cousins house to have dinner and visit with all of the extended family. Gavyn with her cousin Grace (Gavyn loved this rocket swing)! Somehow this was the only picture we ended up with, I think our camera was dying and since everyone else was snapping pictures we figured we would let them take 'em! It was a funfilled LONG weekend, but well worth it to see family again. Our next one is in 2 years in MN - here we come Mall of America!!!

P.S. For those of you wondering if we liked the "boyfriend" - the answer is a YES! He was very nice and great with the kids! We gave Fran our approval!!!

That was a fun trip - but too much car time! The kids, big and small did great! Love, Oma
