Comments anyone?

Oh my GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh, oh my goodness, I can't believe it!!!  I had no idea that you could leave all these comments on people's blogs!  I am so stinking excited!  OK, I need to calm myself for a moment... and deliver my confession, a moment of truth.  I think one time I left a comment on someone's blog.  I don't know when it was. I don't even know if it worked.  I have never read the comments that others have left on my blogspot. I don't know why, maybe I am truly dense in the head.  Whatever, WHO CARES, I FINALLY READ THEM!!! YEAH! And now I have people to connect with that I haven't been in contact with for forever because they left comments! I am slightly elated.  :) Very happy to say the least! Deep breath, calm down (I'm talking to myself), you can stop freaking out and start responding to your sweet friends.  OK, all better now. Ha!  
Lots O' Love -Christi- :)

A Visit to a Not-So-Secret Garden

The Chicago Botanical Garden.  Our first visit.A beautiful example of an Illinois prairie.
Papyrus... I can't wait to grow this one day.
Don't know what this is, but it is dry, prickly, and green all at the same time.  Plants are cool.
A sea of hydrangeas.
Ha!  Skot had a blast. :)

My sweaty boy and his dirty bike

I should have made a greater effort to capture the yucky sweat on his face and dripping from his hair. Yuck.  His funny faces are too cute for me to pass up. 

Skot would not like me calling his bike dirty.  He cleans it... a lot.  It takes him forever. He spends more time cleaning and doing detail work on his bike than he does cleaning the cars.

The Beauty of the Earth

Some pictures of the beautiful swiss chard a girlfriend from church gave to me.  I love fresh vegetables.  I love greens!  Look at the gorgeous colors... Just another one of God's lovely creations.

Old Hair, New Hair

Had this hair style (sorta) for a while... maybe 6 months or more.
I've had this one for a week or so.

An Evening at the Ravinia

The Ravinia is an outdoor park concert venue. This was our first time going. We spent the evening with Jason S, Nancy (the evening was compliments of sweet Nancy) and some of her friends. The Temptations and the Four Tops played and they were great!
Skot, Nancy, and Jason S
Guess who?
Jason S, Skot, and Christi :) Uhh... anyone who knows us well does not even need to ask if that is a brewski in Skot's hand.  Just to satisfy the curiosity of others - it is, in fact, root beer.

Six Flags Great America with the Warr fam

Skot, Amalea, Christi on a dizzy ride.
The Warrs
Monica, Isabel, and Jason - what a cutie baby.
Isabel, Skot... we watched the girls for a bit while Jas and Mon took a break and rode The Dark Knight ride. :)
