Our trip to IL-part 1

We arrived in Channahon, ready to see Aunt Kitty, Found her at school and got to see her new room and some old friends. Then we headed to lunch at a Mexican restuarant, with aunt Kitty and Laura S. Afterwards, we went back to Aunt Kitty's and Uncle Richie's house. AK had to go back to school for the evening, so we headed to visit with our old neighbors the Moon's. It was good seeing them and chatting, they treated us to dinner at Cookies, in Minooka.
On Tues, found out during the night someone had hit our rental car, so we spent the day exchanging the car for a different one. Not a fun thing to do. One I hate driving in traffic, then put me in traffic on the roads around Chicago and OHare airprt with no drivers side mirror, not a good situation. Did do a little shopping, took AK for her bp checkup and had some Portillos for lunch. I do not miss the traffic in IL.
Wed, we woke up and headed for Shedd Aquarium. It was a fun day had by all, the rain couldn't even dampen our day. We spent over 5 hours there and Rieley really liked seeing all of the fish and water animals. She fell asleep for the last half hour of the place, but that was time in the shops and getting ready to hit the wonderful walk back to the car in the rain.
We went to eat more pizza, with Miriam and then back to the house to visit with Mary Lundberg.The Johnston boys have spent alot of this visit trying to brainwash Rieley about the U of I, which all 5 of the Johnstons have attended and graduated from except for Luke, and he will in 2 years.
We, will be heading back to Lafayette tomorrow morning and trying to unbrainwash Rieley of the U of I.
