Happy Holidays

A little extra-curricular holiday fun this past weekend, as the entire Scheidel clan visited Chicago. Tom, Mary, Colleen, Jake, and Ian are rockstars, enjoying every minute of their trip, even in a snowstorm. While the 7" of snow prevented us from logging any miles on the lakefront trail, we did manage to meet up at the Christkindl Market, take a stroll to Macy's to see the windows and the tree, marvel at The Bean and other artwork at Millennium Park, stuff our faces at one of my favorite loop pubs, and even get a little smarter and thoughtful with our visit to the McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum.

PS. Check out Tom's hat--public shout-out to our team!

We had a great time, even chatting a bit about our great time in 2007 and looking forward to an even more amazing 2008 season with our team.

Happy Holidays to all!

Ahh. Christmas in Chicago. Makes me want to throw in Christmas Vacation. I'm sure Tom did his best Clark W Griswold impersonation @ the department store, "it wouldn't be the Christmas shopping season if the stores were any less hooter than they, hotter than they are".

Jack, you had me laughing out loud like an idiot in the middle of my office today. :) "Can't see the line, can you Russ?"

heh heh

Thanks for being our tour guide. Millenium Park was very cool, I'll bet it's even better to visit when not in the middle of a blizzard. I've posted a couple more pics at our blog.

Huh. I bet The Bean in a blizzard is pretty funky!
