Chicago/Green Bay

 We recently ventured back to Chicago for the first time in six years, almost to the day.  Felt so good to be back in our favorite city.  We only had one evening there, though, en route to Green Bay.  Just enough time to catch up with Scott's parents and drop Amaya off for a fun-filled weekend with grandma and grandpa.  We must plan a trip back soon with enough time to visit our ol' Chicago peops and take in all our favorite places!

Dear Chicago, You are the most wonderful city in the world.  We have missed you and are so excited to see you again.

The next morning Scott and I ventured north with our fabulous friends the Stephenson's.  The weekend was a blast!  Time spent with the Stephenson's always is, but add in Green Bay and hello great memories. 
The fall foliage was fun to take in considering we are all from the midwest but currently reside in Phoenix.

Visiting this place never gets old.

Mae and Brett were beginning to feel a little green and found their team colors just in time.
No comment needed. :)

Tailgaiting (Brett and Mae decided to wear Packer colors despite being a Vikings fan and Bears fan respectively to show support for our team in light of what transpired earlier this week.  True friends and what great sportsmanship.  We appreciated it.)

My streak continues.  I have been to approximately 20 Packer games and they have won every time.  I think they should pay me to attend all Packer games as the official good luck charm of the team.

Time To Celebrate!
 While mom and dad were busy playing in Green Bay, Amaya was busy taking in Chicago with Grandma Kim and Papa John.  They went shopping at American Girl and for lunch at American Girl Restaurant.  They also took in the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, a boat ride, Navy Pier, Children's Museum, a horse-drawn carriage ride, and lunch at Ditka's to watch the Packer game.  Needless to say the trio had a fabulous time. 
Amaya picked out matching outfits for Kanani and herself.

Kanani was giddy with excitement.
