This past weekend Kreg and I took a little mini-vacation up to Chicago. It was about a 4 hour drive to his brother Kent's house. We picked up his brother Kristopher on the way up so Kristopher and his fiancee could get their marriage license on Friday (Kristopher and Monica are getting married November 17th in Chicago). Aiden enjoyed Chicago and seeing his Uncles but he did not enjoy the car ride! I don't know why but he does not like being in that car seat for very long. And for some reason he was awake all the way up there! The poor guy just wouldn't give in and sleep. We even left Thursday evening because we thought maybe then Aiden would sleep when it got close to bedtime....but no he showed us up and kept those eye lids open.

On Friday we went to the Museum of Science and Industry. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. The coolest part for me was the exhibit showing the progression of a fetus in the womb. They actually have real fetus' in glass cases on display. It was sad to see these babies that didn't make it into the world but absolutely amazing to see up close the different stages of development. Kreg enjoyed the farming exhibit. And we both liked the "skiing" similators. Kreg also got to try one of those electronic stand up scooter thingy's (see picture) idea what their real name is. We see the security guards at the malls on them all the time now.

On Saturday I got to go to IKEA!! wooohoooooo. It was a fantastic morning wandering through the store. We had two "big" bibes that have sleeves and a cookie jar. Saturday afternoon we watched Kent play softball downtown and then we headed home so we could be back for church on Sunday. It was a nice couple days away. And in less than two weeks we are headed to Florida for a week! I'm so excited!!
