This was the most important aspect of our trip. While in Ohio we were able to spend time with both of our parents. This was the first time that I saw my dad since his recent open-heart surgery. It was great to see him doing so much better. We also enjoyed our time with Vickie’s parents. They live on a beautiful lake, which offers a great opportunity for fishing and relaxation. Although, we had little success with catching fish, we were able to relax.
How can you not eat on vacation? While in Chicago we ate Lou Malnati’s famous Chicago style deep-dish pizza. We ate at Portillos, home of the famous Chicago style hot dog and ate ice cream from Andy’s Custard. Mmmm was it good! In addition, we benefited from the tremendous cooking of our moms and Jenny, our daughter in law. We are now in recovery mode trying to lose the weight that we gainedJ.
