As a birthday surprise Tony snuck our two great friends Leanne and Brad into town! He came home early on Friday, told me to cover my eyes, and viola! There were our Chicago buddies ready for a weekend of fun times!


We spent lots of time exploring the city via Letterboxing. We checked out the Nature Center and behind the bird sanctuary we took a break for a photo opp. Notice how Brad is the tallest one in the photo. Notice also that Leanne and I don't know what to do with our hands.


Twice we went to Mother's vegetarian restaurant and ate soup. This was more fun than it sounds. Alice enjoyed bouncing from lap to lap with constant tummy rubbing and binky retrieving.

Uh, I look weird in ALL the pictures. Thank you for sharing them with the Internet. Brad looks awesome. :)

Thank you (Tony) for organizing our trip to Austin. This was my first time to Texas and I've concluded that I'm sooo Midwest. "Look, those people are waiting for the bus without layers. In December."

We had a nice time! Happy Birthday Weekend!

Also, I prefer this site for letter boxing: http://www.atlasquest.com/

It seems to have most of the boxes on the first site, with more information, such as "kid friendly," etc...
