Hi! Today is 11/11 and that means it's Kelly's birthday! We celebrated by spending the weekend at the Illinois Beach Resort, just north of Chicago. The parents of my brother-in-law, Bryan Clay, gave us a voucher for a free weekend there. Illinois Beach is a state park right on the shore of Lake Michigan, and many of the rooms at the resort have lakeside views. We had something better. As soon as we got to our room, Regan and Jack opened the curtains and screamed with joy: from our room, we could see right into the indoor pool area! Of course, that's where we spent most of our time. Even Finn and I got in on the action. I took a dip in the whirlpool, and Kelly took Finn in the big pool for close to an hour. He didn't want to get out! I guess he's just like Aubrey, Regan, and Jack in that regard. We can't thank Bruce and Nell Clay enough for the wonderful getaway.
I'm posting some pictures we took while we were away. That's Regan floating, Aubrey drying off (yes, it's a fake!), and big brother Jack showing Finn how to watch TV!
