Friday afternoon, we took the Metra train into downtown Chicago with the pastor and his wife. We had so much fun! :-) It was complete culture shock....when we walked up from the underground train station, and saw all of the TALL buildings.....wow! What a feeling! We Iowans were in a state of shock....to us Des Moines is a big town...but it was nothing compared to Chicago. Here are some pictures from our big expedition! :-D
::Actually, this isn't Chicago....this is Crestwood, where we were doing the revival. Chicago is famous for it's hot dogs...so we just had to try some at Portillo's - very good!::
::Pastor Mark and Paula::
::Sorry this is a little dark....you may need to click on it to enlarge it, so you can see it better::
::What a view! Notice the Sears Tower (wonder which one that is??)::
::Tired from the exciting day, but not too tired to pose for one last picture:: ::Strawberry smoothie Mexican style! We got a good chuckle out of this one.....::
::This is a video of Mom and Deanna rock climbing at Dick's Sporting Goods....watch Mom especially (on left)...she had a rough go of it! It's pretty funny! :-D Be sure to pause the music on the sidebar!::
Thanks to Mark and Paula for taking the day to show us around Chicago, and for putting up with our constantly stopping to videotape/take pictures! We had so much fun!
As always, we ask for your continued prayers. Dad and Deanna left today for a revival in Des Moines, Iowa, so please keep those services in your prayers.
