... Resort in Sayner, Vilas County. It was a week of fishing, paddling, lounging, family, smores, loons, and "duck *****." It is not very exciting and so I decided that doing a bloggy thing would be a waste of time. The highlight for me was seeing a black bear on the way home in Arbor Vitae and finally consummating my fascination with the junkyard that Dr. Evermor transformed into a work of art known as Forevertron.

Today was a beautiful day and we tried to take advantage of it. We started with a trip up in the John Hancock Tower to soak up the views. And they were awesome. The buildings/city, the beautiful lakefront drive, and Lake Michigan. Very interesting. Then we headed over to Millennium Park. We had a delicious lunch in the Park Grill.

So, I was up at 4AM to catch the 7AM Delta flight to Chicago via Minneapolis.
The Delta check-in at Mccarran airport was very cramped. There is not a separation between domestic and international and I ended up in the line to Cairo. These folks had a ton of luggage.
The stop-over in Minneapolis was brief and got back home around 3 in the afternoon.
The next trip I take to Vegas will be for fun.
... Chicago. (SHOUT OUT to "magic" Jeanie for the incredibly sweet, creative and heartfelt gift). I will post more pictures tomorrow for you to enjoy! Thanks again for reading...
After lunch we are heading to Ohio for the night... and then we are off to JERSEY on Thursday!
A special thank you to Kate, Molly, Harry & Willie for a great time in Chicago! We miss you already!
