Chicago, Sailing, hanging with family










We recently visited my family in Chicago and had an amazing time. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful family. Brandon and Steph from p-town came to Chicago for the first half of the visit to fulfill Brandon's life long dream of seeing his Cubs play at Wrigley Field. While we there I also got to hang out with my cuz Scott from St. Louis. We hadn't hung out a lot since we were kids so it was wonderful to get to know each other again. What a blasty blast we had swimming and sailing on Lake Michigan.
