As usual, our trip started off by a stop at the bookstore for some high priced paraphernalia. Then the storm blew in! The clouds got dark and the rain and hail hit. It was beautiful and made for some fantastic pictures.
After the rain and a few beers, Joe and I toured the campus and covered the Dome, the Grotto and the Lake.
And the football game! Or should I say butt kicking? 56-14
Uncle Jim (still a happy camper even though Navy lost) with Uncle Kevin
Uncle Mike- GO IRISH
On Sunday we went sight-seeing. We saw the famous Chicago theater sign and Marilyn Monroe statue.
After all the fun was over, we had to go back to reality. BUT, thanks to our friend Jacquelyn- we got a new couch! It's like we are grown-ups, the couch we had was over 15 years old and full of holes. Not to mention it was blue leather. LOL
