A few weeks ago we went to Chicago!

It was fun and filled with all sorts of adventures.
If you remember THIS post, then you may have guessed that we missed our flight from LA because we only showed up an hour before boarding....
I know, dumb.
Either dumb of us or dumb of the airport...
You decide.
No worries though. We were lucky enough to get seats together on the next flight to O'Hare.

Once we got there, Kylee had a bit of a surreal moment.
She saw Nana and Grandpa but they were
*If I was really cool and talented, I would've made those words pop out of the screen. Sorry, the "bold" is the best I got! *
To explain, we regularly talk to Nana and Grandpa on Skype.
So until Chicago, we suspected that Kylee thought that they were just moving pictures.
Yes, just like the ones in Harry Potter.

Anyway, once Kylee realized that they were real people, she had a ball!
She even got to see Aunt D and met Karma and Stefan VanSant!
We were in good company to say the least.

Moving on,
We ate SOOO much amazing food.
(I love you Al's Deli!)
I'll just leave it at that.

But the pinnacle of the trip was going to the Temple as a family!
Diana was going through for the first time and it was a wonderful experience.
Here are some cute pictures of Kylee at the temple.
Isn't she pretty?

Few things compare to the sweet feelings of being together as a family.
Chicago was awesome!
How could it not have been?
