My trip to Chicago!!

First my sister and I stayed at the Chicago Hilton on Michigan Avenue!! BEAUTIFUL. I love that hotel. I only felt a little guilty helping Paris with giving her a bit more money to play with. This is my bed....all to myself!!! I put the Martha Stewart Living on it to make it look even more comfortable and inviting!!!

The reason for the visit!

My annual Pampered Chef National Convention. It was nice. The new products are neat and I did learn a bit of stuff between my book and crossword I was working on.

Sue, my director of 9 years.
My Sister and I went around town and looked at the sights.
A neat statue on our walk.
The Lion Statue out side of the Art Museum.
A cool fountain in Millennium Park.
The bean. Super Neat!!
Buckingham Fountain
(My sister and I would always accidentally call it Buckingham Palace)
A Clipper ship in the harbor.
One of the big towers.....Sears??
Navy Pier

Oprah did live on the top floor of this building, does live on the top floor of this building, or someone was just telling me that.

The Light house at the end of Navy Pier.

A Sea Gull. All I could think of was "mine, mine" from Nemo.

A huge coast guard cutter docked at Navy Pier. Quite impressive.

Chicago Sky Line from Navy Pier.

We had a most lovely day. We also looked at a globe exhibit that was scattered a few places around town.

I will blog those soon.

conference notes

I went to National Conference for PC in Chicago.
It finally dawned on me that I would probably want to take some notes.
I found some in my date book.
Thank goodness for the unused address/telephone sheets!!
Actually, it was a very good conference and I had a fun time shirking my responsibilities.
Photos to come.

Taking a break

I just got back from Chicago.
I think it is funny that I could do my blog on my cabin vacation,
but not in the heart of the city. Frankly, I didn't have time.
This is a photo I took this spring of a big bumble bee in my Clematis.
It was very cool.

Hanging out with my Peeps!

Bing thought he was so cool hanging out with the resort dog Hunter. Hunter is the main reason we got a dog. He is a sweet, friendly, ball stealing golden retriever. Bing could not get enough of him. Hunter could have cared less about him!! K~

Morning Visit

We woke up one morning to this beautiful sight right out our window. This Great Blue Heron was just asking to be photographed. I was able to get some great photos. It was poking at our minnow bucket.

Boating with the Walshes

The boat ride with the Walshes. It started out with "boat safety first". I like how all 3 of the kids are hanging over the side of the boat. At least they have their life vests on. Then we took a high speed ride across the lake. Bing thought he was SO cool. Under the bridge and the turn back to the cabin. D getting a boating lesson from dad. Notice how he is looking where he is going. Then S needed to get in on the action. Dad teaching him how. And then..... Notice where S is looking while driving the boat. I see now, why they recommend one be older to drive a boat. Finally to the cabin we go. K~
