Trip to Chicago - Paul Konerko Day

Anyone who knows Andy knows how much he loves the White Sox and Paul Konerko.  It is no surprise then that we went to Chicago last weekend for his last two games and Paul Konerko Day.

We started out Saturday at Drew's game.  I took a little video of Drew playing quarterback:

Almost a completion!

After the game, we headed to Chicago.  I dropped Andy and Drew off at the game and then drove downtown with Kayley and Ryan.  We took our stuff to the hotel and met Mel and Sam at Navy Pier for the evening.  The weather was BEAUTIFUL and we had a lot of fun!  The kids enjoyed everything there was to do and Mel and I had a great time catching up.

Ryan's turn to drive the boats

HUGE ferris wheel!

Happy girl

Sam's first ride
The boys enjoyed the night game and took the train back to the hotel.  They got back pretty late and Drew was wide awake so it took a little while for him to fall asleep.  Poor kid didn't get much sleep because Ryan was up pretty early the next morning.

Kayley and I walked to the American Girl store for shopping and brunch on Sunday.  This was our second time at the American Girl store.  We went in May with Mel, Angela and Amelia.  Kayley had a hard time deciding what she wanted...because she wanted pretty much everything.  But, in the end, she decided not to get anything and wait and tell Santa that she really wants the twins and the twin stroller for Christmas.  :-)

We're back!

Patiently waiting for their brunch.

While Kayley and I were at the American Girl Store, Andy took Drew and Ryan to the Willis Tower.  Andy said Drew wasn't so sure about the glass platform you walk out on.  Ryan, on the other hand, wasn't fazed at all.

Great view of the city

Cheese time again

This picture makes me nervous

A little unsure

All three boys

After our morning adventures, we met back at the hotel and then headed to U.S. Cellular Field for Paul Konerko's last game.  We had a great time at the game and it was nice to be there for his last game.
