We had a wonderful trip. The four eldest kids went to my dad and step-mom's for the weekend. They take all of the potty-trained kids for 4 days during something called Gran-Camp. They had a great time, going on scavenger hunts, treasure hunts, playing in the wade pool, having a tea party, cooking out back, going to the zoo... it was a riot for them.
While they were gone being kids, Calvin, Xman, and I bummed around Chicago. It was the weekend of Lolapalooza, although we tried our hardest to avoid all things paloozaish. I uploaded those photos to our facebook account. See them there!
