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.

Perfect Summer Weekend

Saturday morning Finn took to the skies and went flying in a little aircraft over our town.

If you have kids 8-17 years old check into this program. They sure do make the kids feel special and you can't beat the price(it's FREE).

Then I headed South with a friend to go trail riding. It was her first time ever riding a horse and she even thought our speed was incredibly SLOW. But it was still nice to be outside. We even went on a short hike to the nearby gorges after our trail ride.

Sunday I viewed my first cowboy mounted shooting competition. They ended up having 31 competitors which was good(lots of variety in skill level) and bad(it took a long time to set up between riders). The two riders we went to support ended up taking first and third place so that was awesome!

It was a perfect summer weekend.
