Chicago: Final Edition

Remember that one time we went to Chicago? Ohh, only a month and a half ago.

I am FINALLY posting the rest of the pictures!! I promise this is the last post about our trip.

After our second day in the city, we headed to see our friends Brady, Mandi, and Millie who live in the burbs. It's so good to have friends out in the midwest, helps us feel a little less alone. They were incredibly gracious and let us stay with them while little Millie entertained us endlessly. Doesn't she look like Boo from Monsters Inc?

They took us on a nice afternoon stroll.It was hot and humid but thankfully the view was awesome.

We stopped at this cute little shop and marveled at the greatness of ice cream topped with cookie dough. Delish! And the cashier gave us some great advice, "Be careful if you take the ice cream outside. It'll melt!" Golden.

We tried to take a group picture. Not a complete failure I guess?

Jason, per usual, was out making new friends.

Thank you Jones family for hosting us! Let's do it again, okay? :)

And the best part about our trip was that when we got back into Iowa, it actually felt kinda sorta like home for the first time.


  1. chicago is really and truly one of my favorite cities.

  2. Oh my gosh... the cookie dough<3

  3. i want to badly to go to chicago.... i want that ice cream.

  4. We're SO glad you guys came! It was fun to have you! We definitely need to do it again!

  5. and there was much rejoicing in my mind, to know that I'm not the only one who sometimes experiences a delay in posting stuff!! Man that cookie dough looks amazing! Looks so much fun. I love what you said about when you got back, it finally felt like home. :) That's such a wonderful feeling.
