Here, There and Everywhere!

 From Indiana to Michigan, From Michigan to Indiana. From Indiana to Chicago. Whew! It's been a whirlwind of travel and laundry!

We took Sam to see all the important sights... Legoland!

...The Field Museum to meet a T Rex dinosaur named Sue!

...and of course, a trip to the top of the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower!

 We had a great trip! Sam now has a few more things to add to his "What I did this summer" essay when he goes back to school next month.

Oh, and did I mention...I'm going on a business trip with my husband to New York City next weekend. Yep. This homebody is definitely stepping out of her comfort zone this summer. It's been one wild ride!

I found a little time to play between loads of laundry! Today's SCS challenge was to make a card that features something made of wood. I decided to take strips of paper from My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally, cut the tops to create a picket, and taped them in place to make a fence.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by the cafe this weekend!
