We just came home from a wonderful weekend in Chicago visiting our sister & brother-in-law & family. As always with visits with family, it went WAY too quickly.
The Man of the Hour - We were in Chicago to celebrate this sharp dressed man. Matthew Edward Reall turned 8 and was baptized.
We stayed with the Realls for four days. Mike's sweet sister, Tammy, and her darling boys, Gavian, Damian, and Christian also made the trip up. It was so fun getting to know her better. Along with the five adults in the house, we had one 1 year-old, two 2 year-olds, two 5 year-olds, a 6 year-old, three 8 year-olds, and a 10 year-old. That would be ten kids under the age of 10! And believe it or not, everyone got along so well! It was great to see the kids having so much fun together.
While there we spent a day enjoying the beautiful weather at a park. We started off the day fishing, but that was quickly aborted when a clueless woman brought her dog over to our dock and threw a stick into the lake for it to retreive. Tammy even asked her, "Are you not concerned about the dog getting stuck by the hook?"
