Chicago, Illinois

One week ago I departed from one of my favorite places in the world, Chicago, IL and I miss it very much already! It was the perfect ending to our wonderful, amazing, adventurous trip. I cannot believe that we have already been back for an entire week! Where did June and July go?!
Buckingham Fountain
Family waiting for the train!
The amphitheater!
Da Bean!
Some sibling love!
“I smile because you’re my sister. I laugh because there’s nothing you can do about it.” 🙂



Parental Love!
They are so cute 🙂




Seriously one of my favorite places in the city!
Some people say we look like twins!
Waiting on the train back to Oak Park! Home sweet home!
ANDDD….We got back in Ohio just in time to be there for our new nephew to make his grand debut! Dalton Andrew Baker we love you already!
Congratulations to my beautiful sister-in-law, Julie, and brother-in-law, Phil! Look at Holden cheesing away! 🙂
And I sure did miss these folks!
It’s definitely good to be back! And it feels like we never left. It’s crazy how fast time goes by. It just goes to show you need to cherish every moment and never take life for granted. I can’t wait until our next big adventure! We hope to backpack across Europe next summer for 3 weeks and end in Africa for a week to do a mission trip! Please pray that we can make this dream come true!
