Happy 4th July

Wishing everybody a Happy 4th July Weekend. Connor and I will be leaving for Chicago in a short while, we’re visiting Mike, Lynda and Morgan for the holiday weekend. Shown below is a great "flag shortbread" that Anne and Connor prepared during the week, it is very good!!

We are also looking forward to collecting Lynne and the girls on Sunday morning at the airport after a long three weeks. It will be great to have them home again and to hear their trip highlights!


Enjoy everybody.

Weekend in Chicago

Connor and I had a great weekend in Chicago with Kay. We hit all our planned activities and even managed to meet Kay’s friend Anita for dinner. We took the subway as a special treat for Connor.


He really liked our day touring around the park area of Chicago, the bean, the many fountains, the new Maggie Daley Park and the strawberry snow cone I let him have were obvious hits. It was a great way to spend Father’s day, I enjoyed our day together buddy! A few select photos of the day are shown below.

Shedd Aquarium


Connor and I are visiting Chicago again this weekend. Since Lynne and the girls are in the UK, and will be for another two weeks, I’m trying to make our time together as much fun as possible. We went swimming and this morning we had our trip to the Shedd Aquarium for a few hours (he ran out of steam pretty quickly). 

Tomorrow we’re going to check out the new Maggie Daley Park and then of course a short walk over to see “The Bean”. Anybody out there have any suggestions for a short weekend trip next weekend?

Glad Midsommar

Today is midsommar in Sweden and for those of you who don’t know, it’s by far the country’s largest national holiday. We spent five wonderful years in Sweden; those days are filled with terrific memories of the country and its people. To all our friends enjoying the day in Sweden, Glad midsommar, we miss you!! Hopefully the weather is playing nice.


Shown below are a few pictures of past midsommar activities,we have enjoyed, three separate occasions.
