I spent last weekend visiting my brother Ben and his family in Chicago. I wanted to see their place out there and spend time with the kids. I had originally picked that weekend to also see a day of AVP volleyball, but that fell through when the AVP fell apart earlier this summer. I was able to go down to the University of Illinois with them to watch some BYU volleyball. Sunday we also got over to my grandma's house (she passed away last year) and it was nice to be back there one more time, recalling childhood memories. I also spent some time walking around downtown Chicago, taking an architectural boat tour on the river and lake (free too thanks to some nice people!), and going to a Cubs game at Wrigley... the most perfect place for a sporting event.
Sadly though most of my photos I took were deleted yesterday when my phone got a 'sweet' new update... which caused a factory reset. I did upload a few to facebook before that happened.

How fun! Chicago is such a neat place to visit! And bummer about the pictures getting deleted from your phone... :S

Looks like you had a great time Dan. Hopefully we will be able to go visit Ben and Linds sometime.

What? You didn't mention all the screaming and chaos and the part about babysitting three kids, most of whom cried for part of the time? I thought that was the most fun part of the trip :) Haha I'm glad you had fun. You are always welcome here. It was good to see you!
