I'm spending the next week as basically a tourist in Chicago. Sure, I've been living here for nearly a year, but I haven't gotten a chance to do a lot of things yet. With a few days off and my mom in town visiting, it's the perfect time! We started yesterday with a cold and dreary architecture boat tour on Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. How cool to see the city from a different angle!
I also spent Friday going up to Oklahoma City for the day with my mom and a friend. We, of course, did some shopping and then we headed into the city and spent some time at a park downtown. It was a really nice and even though it was chilly, I enjoyed photographing the flowers, plants, and especially the ducks!
This post is a part of a blog circle! Please follow the circle around to Andrea's post - I'm sure she has something great to show you this month!
P.S. Do you "like" me on facebook yet?
Stained glass at church after everyone left and we turned off the lights. The light shining through was too much, I couldn't resist!
I swear the dishes were multiplying - just when I thought I was done, I'd turn around and find another pile that I'd missed!
I installed more ram on my computer all by myself! It was incredibly easy, really!
My mom needed 3D shapes for school, so I made some for her. And they were so fun and colorful!
Time for a new sketchbook since the old one is falling apart!
My mom starts school on Monday, so this weekend was the end of summer (I still have a while left in mine) We both wanted an adventure, so we went out to a state park a few hours from home and went kayaking & hiking. It was the perfect adventure!
Neither of us had been kayaking before, but it was lots of fun and so beautiful & peaceful! I wish I could've brought my camera on the kayak, but you can imagine that wouldn't have been a good idea! So a picture from our hike will have to do - I love that you can see the ripples in the water!
