My bags are packed...

...and we're headed for a long weekend in the windy city.

Chicago here we come!




This family get-a-way was planned by son-in-law Rob & son Matthew.


Now when you let 2 guys plan a vacation....



this is where you will end up....




...at a ball park for the series between the Chicago Cubs & the Minnesota Twins!


Now, you are all probably thinking that we are a "Cubs Fan Family", right??!



No, we are one of those "house-divided" families...



Some will cheer for the Twins & some will cheer for the Cubs...



Here is a break down of who cheers for whom:

Darling Husband - Twins fan

Myself - Twins fan

Daughter Erin - Twins fan

Son-in-law Rob - Cubs Fan (so die-hard of a fan that he even has a brick at Wrigley with his name on it).

Son Matthew - Twins fan (an obnoxious one too) He has reminded his brother-in-law several times that if he ever wants to cheer for his team in a World Series he really needs to find a new team.

Sons girlfriend Megan- Twins fan

and then there is this little guy...

Now, I know his daddy has sang him the Cubs fight song at least once a day, everyday of his 6 1/2 month life....


And Daddy also thinks his first words are going to be "Go Cubs"...


BUT....





...he looks awfully proud in his Twins jersey!





Go Twinkies,

You're coming to my neck of the woods! I work in the historic Wrigley Building at Michigan Ave and the Chicago River so be sure to wave as you pass by :)

I'm sure you'll have a great time. Be sure to pack a coat it's been unseasonably cool for June.

Blessings, Patti

Ha ha, Gramma, you know of course, as the gramma you can bribe, give treats, whatever it takes to bring the"fan" to your team!!!!!
Grammas are allowed, I know!!!!
