How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

Rain,Rain Go Away

My better half took Friday off from work to hang out in the summery weather. We headed off to go biking again along the Fox River trail for a short 10 mile ride from Batavia to St. Charles.

This sculpture always greets us on the way through Pottawatomie Park in St. Charles. Meet Foxcycle, he's made entirely from recycled bicycle parts.

We were lucky to have such a nice, sunny day on Friday. The kid's earned free tickets to a Kane County Cougars game on Saturday but we didn't get to see a game played as the rain and thunderstorms blanketed the area.
On Saturday my eldest participated in his first piano competition. He ended up with a silver medal for second place. He was surprised he placed as he has only been playing for a bit over a year now.

He says now he's inclined to enter next year to strive for first place with a cash prize. It is amazing what this child can do when he motivates himself toward a goal.
