Weekends with our Moms

Over the past two weekends, we were privileged to have two very special visitors...our Moms! It was so nice having some family in town. We enjoyed showing them some of Chicago's greatest attractions and our new little neighborhood. We loved having them out here. Thanks for coming!
(We forgot to take pictures when Amber was out here.)

All three of us sharing a pizza at Giordano's. Look at the size of that Chicago pizza!

Dave and his Podiatry friend Brian. They took us on a little tour of their school.

Our Illinois beach---Lake Michigan. Hey, we can't beat the California beaches, but we are excited that we have something that resembles the beach so close to home.

Over the last couple of months, we have been busy making Illinois our new home. Dave is currently in his first year of Podiatry school. Although he is ALWAYS studying, he is really enjoying his classes. Meanwhile, I have passed my nursing boards and have interviewed at several hospitals in the area. I must say that I am thoroughly enjoying my time as a stay at home wife for now. Dave also had a birthday a couple of weeks ago. To celebrate, we went to the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Chicago Bears game. We actually got our hands on some field passes. Although our Eagles lost the game, it was a very fun and exciting night.

Anyone recognize him?
Or him?
