This is what the peppers looked like shortly after planting them.
Look at how much they have grown!!
So, I might be a big nerd but I thought it would be fun to get a little pool for the puppies to play in. Of course Shelly thougth it was a fun idea too so we went for it. The dogs didn't like it as much as we had hopped but we had fun. It's also nice for laying out becuase it really gets hot out there and now we can put our feet in the pool!
Chloe was not real impressed with the cold water but she lookes so cute!

On Tuesday night our fabulous friends Joy, Sean, Keisha and Eric decided to throw Josh a surprise, belated, birthday party. It was so sweet of them, they brought cake, candles and gifts. Josh was totally surprised. Sean made a Chocolate Peanut Butter cake that was to die for and of course Josh loves peanut butter so it was perfect! Later we played games and had lots of fun and laughter!

On July 8th 2007 Jodi and Ben were married at the McHenry Country Club in Cristal Lake Illinois. It was a beautiful wedding. What you can't tell from these pictures is just how hot it was. It was the hottest day of the summer for Illinois and this was an out door 4:30 wedding. It was HOT! It was worth it though because it was so beautiful and the Bride and Groom had a perfect time. Jodi was laughing and having a ball through every part of the wedding, it was really fun to watch.

After we did the shower portion of the night we went down to the bar in the basement, yeah nice house! It was so cute, Carrie's Dad was the bartender. He made us J-E-L-L-O shots whcih was perfect seeing that Jodi has a thing for J-E-L-L-O. After that we went out to some real bars for some good old embarrasment for the bride. The only problem is Jodi's is impossible to embarrase! We had a blast!
This is Kim and her friend Julie who we got to know on this trip. It sees that she thinks we are a little strange, who could blame her!?
This is the world famous Fariswheel. I believe it was the first one in the world and was made to show the French up after they made the Eiffel Tower. It is a huge Fariswheel that moves very slow so that you can enjoy the view of Chicago from up high. It really was awesome!
It is truly and incredible view! It was also nice to sit down after walking around the city all day. Oh and this was actually the 4th of July.
Right next to this building is one of the Trump buildings. It is actually the building that Bill form season 1 of The Apprentice was hired to work on. It's not finished yet but you can tell that these condos will have amazing views of Chicago.
The park that is seen here is Millennium Park and it's only about 2 or 3 blocks from Kim's Condo.
