four days with family

We returned home from Chicago around 2am today, and goodness, I don’t know if our bed has ever felt so good.  We spent four days in the suburbs visiting my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins and two days in the city seeing some sights and riding some bikes.  More on the city segment of our trip later, but it was a great trip, and we can’t wait to go back!
