Ravinia concert surprise!

Adam found out that Laurie Berkner of the Laurie Berkner Band was coming to the outdoor pavilion in our area and we decided to surprise the kids. They had no clue until it was about 5 til show time. They had a blast and so did we. We got lawn seats and took our lunch. Ravinia is great; you can bring in just about anything and the lawn has shaded seats! Here's a few pictures and hopefully a video for you all to enjoy! If the video won't post here check out Facebook :-)

July 4th fun

Well, we've had our first holiday in Evanston. We missed all of our SC traditions though: the peach festival, the lake with the Vitters family, etc. all in all though it was a great day. We walked to the parade, met a really nice guy who let us sit in one of his camp chairs, I cooked chicken (with Hudson's BBQ sauce...had to get a taste of home:-), corn, and cut up watermelon. We packed it all up with the kids in the wagon and walked to the lake to picnic and watch fireworks. It was a great location bc we saw Chicago's and Evanston's fireworks. The only thing missing was our LUMC crew...but here's some photos so you all can feel like you got to celebrate with us:-)
