I am back, literally (from Chicago) and metaphorically from my blog break.  Randy and I, with 2 of our children, and the super Liddeke family traveled to Chicago for spring break.  Of course, someone should have told the snow that it was spring!  It was pretty chilly while we were there, but it did not slow us down much.

While I was in Chicago, I went to shoe school.  The teacher was fabulous!  You can read all about her and the Chicago School of Shoemaking here.  There were four of us and we made boots.  I picked a red leather with black stitching and black rivets.  I was thinking “hey, I will have razorback boots when I move to Fayetteville”.  Oh my, they turned out so well.  Here are the picks of school and boots:

My brother cleverly said they looked like Pope shoes!

While visiting the windy city, we did a lot of eating, walking, shopping and sight seeing.  We also got to see some friends of the kids.  Emily’s friend Josh took us on a “tour” of the Chicago Arts Institute.  The view was wonderful.

He also joined us for lunch and we finished up eating s’mores.  PERFECT!

After touring the museum, which was varied and fabulous, we went to drink at the John Hancock building.  We loved the views and the fact that a friend of Christians was able to join us.  Her parents were friends of my husband when he was in high school.  Such a small world sometimes.

Oh, the view

Knowing that Chicago was going to be unseasonably cold, I bought a new, orange coat to rock in the windy city.  In my mind, I was way cool:

While I was at shoe school, the others went to visit the University of Chicago and the Robie house.  The Robie house was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and here is the link.   I do think they enjoyed it.

Well, Chicago, the red boots and the orange coat were all wonderful.  It was nice to get away with the Liddekes.  Looking forward to our next trip, wherever that may be.  Also really enjoyed James and Emily coming along.

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter and feel free to send leftover chocolate eggs my way.

Come back later this week for a fun filled post on MOVING, PACKING and other weekend fun!
