Kitten Update

The kitties are getting big! And still quite rambunctious - then they crash, pretty much anywhere. Their latest is to lay down and claim anything we leave hanging around on the floor. This was their latest perch.


Chicago Time

I have a monthly pass as I am commuting to work again and the girls still ride free so a Saturday trip to Chicago is a fun little cost effective excursion. We typically head to Fast Trax, our favorite hot dog place and then meander around for a bit. One of my favorite things to do with the girls.

Big to do on one of the streets - looked like a gas leak.

Oh yeah, Chicago hot dogs. 

French fry fee for a year and 2 months ... 

Train theme as it is literally underneath the Greenline L.

Chillyoutside the Blohmer Chocolate factory. The whole area smells like roasting chocolate. My train goes by it everyday but I have never been. They have an outlet shop so we went and the girls got a few treats to warm them up. 


On the Chicago River.

Cool river scene - can see the curve in the building on the west bank (right) of the river.

Cool horses.

Enjoying the Last Days of Summer

Needs quite a bit of editing but this is what we have been up to for the last month or so.

Both the girls are bike riding now thanks to Alicia's patience with Ada this summer. Actually, once Ada sets her mind on something she is pretty good - its the setting her mind on it that takes a bit of coaxing. On the Prairie Path in Elmhurst - Emmerson in full squint, how she is in half her pictures.

Police participating in some community relationship building something or other. Ada posing dutifully.

Nana sent us several old school board games and this was the girls first go at Monopoly. Ada won.

Back in the mines. Kids at NT on a "field trip".

My afternoon perch while waiting for the train.
