Weekend Visit

Over the weekend, my cousin visited from Pittsburgh. Hauna and I had a great time showing Katie the sites and enjoying Chicago which is presently in full bloom. We hit up some fine drinking and dining around the town and lucked out with excellent weather in defiance of the ever-present threat of thunderstorms.

The weekend officially began with a home-made "complete balanced breakfast" (pictured above) which Katie claimed to have never had and always know...the kind you see on a cereal commercial. We spent some time in Lincoln Park, Southport and Lincoln Square, on Michigan Ave., and at the beach. We also watched Batman Begins at TK's and followed the movie up with our own unofficial Batman tour of Chicago on lower Wacker, in the Loop, etc., since a lot of it was shot here.

Its great to have family visit and be with loved ones in a new setting. Hope you visit again soon, Katie... next time we'll remember to pick you up on time at Midway instead of O'Hare! You're moving here, right?

Thanks for coming, Katie! It was wonderful to have you here. Can't wait to see you at the wedding!
