Seeing as I successfully survived Vacation Bible School (as one of the moms said, we might not have thrived, but we survived...Amen...Alleluia) we are planning to take the kids to Chicago.
Oh, and my mother-in-law is coming too. Always interesting.
Plans are to meet up with Ma Beck at St. John Cantius (SJC) on Sunday. The parish is having its festival and there is an airshow featuring the BLUE ANGELS in Chicago that we can watch from the church. A polish, a pint and planes...God is good!!
I haven't been to a good airshow since we moved back from Washington.
I think hubby may love planes as much as he loves me. But, then there is the State Fair coming up soon and I love mini-doughnuts as much as I love my hubby, so that evens things out.
On Monday, we are heading to Six Flags just north of Chicago. One day of total chaos. Now that I have hit my mid-life stride, I can't handle rides like I used to. Will have to stick to the kiddie rides with my daughter.
Then home again on Tuesday.
If VBS wasn't enough, I'm the one that drives in our family, so I get to drive from the Twin Cities to Chicago and back. Maybe I will forego the Coke products at SJC and indulge in a beer. Or two. Hubby's family is completely Polish, so we should fit right in. (Actually, they are Germans that settled in modern day Poland and my FIL proudly claims he's 100% German...but I like to tease about the Polish.)
