Haha! Thank you! We did! We had a great visit in Chicago with our daughter, and she has us moving from the minute we get there until the minute we leave!

Chicago is always fun! I was just there a week ago. We were taking our teenage son to his first concert. We live just west of Milwaukee.
It was my firs visit. What concert did you go to?
