Chicago layover

My brother Levi was on his way to Ireland on Saturday and he had a layover in Chicago of all places! So Sam and I and all the kids went up and spent the afternoon with him. He had to run into downtown to get a credit card. A 28 minutes drive was actually an 1 1/2 hour drive with traffic. Love Chicago traffic! The magnificent mile was impossible but we made it then we went and had to introduce Levi to famous Chicago deep dish pizza! Then just enough time to drop him back off at the airport! So we spent most of our time in the car but we still loved it and had a blast! Levi made it "Speak like a Pirate Day" and he and Sam loved it. Even Piper thought it was funny and started to do it! Piper was so excited to see Uncle E-Y, but never said a word to him and would whisper things to me when she wanted to say something in front of him! It didn't even help that he was Issac's and Eric's Daddy. Oh well! We had fun and we loved spending the afternoon with him!
My camera died so this was my only picture of our afternoon together! BUMMER!

Wish I could have been there, too! I'm so glad you got to have a fun day, though!

Ireland? How exciting! That is one of the places I've always wanted to visit. Sounds like you had a great day despite the traffic. Is Uno's pizza that good? Have not had it yet.

I mean Chicago Deep Dish Pizza. I am in love with Pappa John's but willing to do a taste test anytime. By the way, my kids love your blog music and when I am checking your blog they turn up the music and dance around like crazy!!!!
