Chicago Marathon!

First got to Chicago and walked TEN miles while waiting for everyone to come!  Later in the day everyone starting arriving, and we all got together and ate at the Cheesecake Factory and shopped around.  Then we went to the expo.  It was Gary and I, Jesse and Amber, Gabe and Hannah, Mike and Bethany, Christa, and Grant.  Although Shalene was there with her parents and Angie and a friend, we didn't see them Friday night.

House Hunting!

Tony called Bethany and Mike to come and look at an amazing house at an amazing deal in St. Clair Shores.  Tony came there and we toured the house.  It WAS great.  Although Bethany & Mike didn't end up getting it, I know it sparked their interest big time.  It was fun to tour it, and later Bethany and Mike DID find a house!  (See Mike & Bethany's blog!)

Another Special Birthday Lunch!

Jessie and Kaylee came and took me to one of my FAV restaurants:  Da Francesco's.  We had a fabulous dinner.  Kaylee made me TWO cards! PLUS a bird house and ladybug!  It was a special time with Jessie & Kaylee!

A Great Start to a Fantastic Birthday!

It was amazing to me to have all my kids at my Church for my birthday!  I was SO HAPPY to look down the row and see everyone, that I almost BURST...  After that we all went out to dinner at Maggiano's and then watched the Truth Project at our house.  A perfect day with some amazing people I am privileged to have as my children and their "significant others"!
