Oh, hey!

Hi guys. This summer is flying by. I can't believe that it is already July! Ay, yi, yi. Where has the time gone? I keep trying to get myself back on blogging track and have been failing miserably. Summertime in Chicago is just too fun. There is always a festival of some sort going on each weekend. I will attempt to share snippets from here on out. Anywho... hope all of you here in the States enjoyed the 4th of July weekend. I had Thursday and Friday off from work so I was able to head up to a family friend's lake house for the holiday. It was nice to take a break from the city and to enjoy a bit of nature.

The photos above are from the past weekend with the exception of the Sox game that I attended the weekend before. I hadn't been to a Sox game since before they renamed the stadium. Although the Sox lost it was still a fun afternoon. As for the past weekend - I walked in the annual 4th of July parade with pea in her hotdog costume. Everyone loves a weenie. The next day I hit up some flea markets and barn sales in Galena. They had some pretty neat stuff but everything was too pricey. I spotted the shark on the ride home and had to take a photo with it - I love sharks and quirky roadside attractions. Saturday night I met up with some friends from school and wandered around Wrigleyville. All in all it was a great four day weekend, I am not ready to head back to work though. I will share some more photos from the trip later on in the week - I can't seem to find my camera chord at the moment.

I also plan to catch up on all of your lives as soon as I get home tonight. It is nice to be back. Have a beautiful Monday everyone.
