For Thanksgiving ’09, we made our first trip back to Chicago since moving away. We drove through the old neighborhood before heading to my sister’s- in many ways it felt like we had never left, but at the same time it was odd to be back there. Even Mya recognized where we were and was whining and pacing around in the car to go run around in her old haunts!
We had a fun weekend with family, including a Turkey Day trip to the Brookfield Zoo, building gingerbread houses with the kids, and going ice skating so the skating pro Elizabeth could show off all her tricks- and teach us a thing or two. But most importantly, we got to enjoy some Chicago-style pizza!! :)
