We are hanging out in Maxwell Ia with my Mom. It is great to be here. Before getting here, we spent a couple of days in Chicago. The kids loved it, especially standing in the box at the top of he Willis Tower. You could look straight down. It was kind of freaky. We got to ride the el too just like in Divergent. Eliza and Nate really liked that. From there we went to Dubuque to see Jack Wertzberger. A dear friend of ours. He has always  been a great host going back to when we visited him in Iowa City too. We spent 2 nights parked in his driveway, which was better than any campground so far. We went to the 25 year anniversary showing of the Field of Dreams. Really cool. We got introduced to Ray Kinsella’s Dad. Jack took us on a cool tour of Dubuque and told us all about its history. It sounds like a really neat town. It sure is pretty on the Mississippi River and all of the cool churches. Jack was a great host. Hard to say good bye. I am looking forward to the next two weeks here with my Mom. It is pretty here too. Nice to be home.
