I went to Founder's Week in Chicago this weekend with a great group of people. There are only three words to describe it: Ah Maze Ing. It sounds like I'm speaking Chinese but what I mean to say is that it was absolutely splendid!
We arrived at the Moody Bible Church on Friday night in time to hear a wonderful lesson by Chuck Swindoll- many of you may have heard him and others on the radio. We had a full day of speakers on Saturday, as well. Some of us from our group wandered around Chicago all afternoon, which was very random fun. I captured some great shots which are pictured below.
Holly, Kristi & I showing our Blow-Pop colored tongues (Strawberry is the best flavor, by the way)
Our car passengers with the best driver ever and Holly's new hero (who rises above President Bush)- Janelle
Beautiful House of Worship
Interior shot (disregard blurriness- I was trying to capture the spectacular lighting)
One of my favorite pictures- Maks and I trying to take a "cool" shot with the 3-way mirror action- Paul looming in the background
In downtown Chicago, they have the coolest McDonald's ever: it has a table which reacts to hand warmth or motion when you touch it. Looks like Holly and I have a pretty strong connection.
Enjoyin' some refreshing Starbucks tasties
Imagine standing in front of a gigantous, blinking face made out of thousands of pieces of screen.
We're ice skating! Ok, not really. It would be hard to top the romantic level of that: ice skating outside in downtown Chicago on a brisk, winter day. Ahhh...
Our group shot in front of the columns
Chicago is so fun to photograph from 4-5... the colors are so vibrant and breath-taking...
What a blessed weekend! Thanks to all who went who made it a fun, enjoyable, and spiritually focused weekend!
I love you all!
