Mom & Dad Visit - Chicago Air & Water Show

For Rachelle's birthday, she got plane tickets to visit our other sister, Angie, in Colorado for the weekend. Her flight was scheduled to fly out of Chicago, so my parents drove her down, stayed with us for the weekend, then picked her up today and left to go back home to Michigan.

As Rachelle and Angie were having fun in Colorado, we were having fun with my parents here in Chicago. They came Thursday afternoon when we just took it easy and had King Ranch Chicken for dinner. (Thanks for the recipe, Steph!) ..and followed with a fire in our fire-pit and roasted up some s'mores.

Then, Friday, we had lunch at Texas de Brazil. Afterwards, Ben and Dad headed to the theater to watch G.I. Joe while my mom and I went and registered for Baby G at Buy Buy Baby. We planned to go to the pool, but it was so hot, we decided against it. Instead, we had dinner at Portillo's, then hit up the Vintage Rides night downtown Wheaton to look at all the classic cars.

Saturday, we got up early and grabbed the train to downtown Chicago for the Air & Water Show. We got back, had Gnocchi for dinner then headed to the cheap seats to watch The Proposal.

Sunday we just had time for church and Meatheads for lunch, then it was time for my parents to pick up Rachelle at the airport and head home.

Thanks for visiting mom and dad!
