Walking and Exploring

I had lots of walking buddies join me this morning. It’s another beautiful day and Luke, Nick, Zack and Josiah found lots of interesting things to check out during our walk.

Luke and I walked to the lake this morning. It’s a beautiful day. It’s supposed to get up to 86 degrees.

Chicago

Kevin and I enjoyed a nice trip to Chicago where he attended a pastor’s conference at Moody Bible Institute. The weather was warm and sunny. We did lots of walking and I especially enjoyed walking along the Navy Pier. Chicago is a totally different world than where I live.

Evening Bike Ride

I didn’t walk this morning but did ride bikes this evening with Nick and Zack. We rode to the park after supper. It felt good to get some fresh air and exercise.

Thanks for the Nice Mother’s Day!

My family treated me well on Mother’s Day. I’m so thankful for my husband and children. God has blessed me with a wonderful family.
