If you ever got to Chicago, you have to visit the Shedd Aquarium. I found the cutest penguin there.

The aquarium was incredible. I have never seen an octopus like this before.

This is one of the actual U-505, the only German submarine in the United States.

Anyone a fan of Transformers? This is the junk yard where they are throwing away parts of the set for Transformers III.
You thought Shia LaBeouf was pretty tough... well look at this guy. Ya, it's all fake.

My first ferris wheel. A little slow for my liking, but what an incredible view.

Dawson, Ashton, Tristan, and Emerson

She is not mine, (I still have 2 1/2 months left), but I will take this little angel... any day. Meet Emerson Sue May "Emery".

Pelotonia 2010

These 3 boys raised $500 each and rode 102 grueling miles. There were over 4 thousand riders who raised over $8 million altogether. 100% of that money went to cancer research.

We celebrated the night before eating, listening to inspirational speakers and jamming out to Counting Crows, Augustana, and Notar. It was pretty cool.

Josh and Krystal
Way to go boys!
