Greetings from the Windy City!!
Chicago is the COOLEST city...especially in the summer.
Having a sister who lives there allows to us to visit every season BUT summer wins every time!

We played on Navy Pier
We rode on the Ferris wheel
This was my FIRST time on a Ferris wheel!
I totally handled it like a pro.
It was also our FIRST time eating at
We rode bikes EVERYWHERE this trip!!
It was so fun to go pick up pizza on our bikes,
and ride through the city
and over the bridge to the zoo.
We went back to Navy Pier!
But this time it was so everyone could ride bikes, not ferris wheels.
These girls LOVED it!
We peddled to "taste of Chicago" and ate Chicagos' finest and drank lots of WATER.
and with all that biking we headed home to wash up
what a week!

Infertile fun friend

This is my friend Taylor.
We met when I was 10.
She moved away when I was 13.
Thanks to the blogging world we reconnected a few years ago.
I looked at her blog and wondered if she was infertile too.
I mean she is Mormon, married for 6 years, and has 2 dogs.
That screams INFERTILE.
I didn't dare ask her over the blog,
so I waited until we were friends on facebook to ask privately.
Low and behold:
She has scar tissue surrounding the outer part of her tubes.

We have seen each other a couple of times since our pen pal-ing over facebook
and things have not changed.
No awkward pauses or weird conversations, we're still the same. And dang it...
We're still FUN!

Taylor and her husband Darren came down and stayed with us for a couple of days. One late morning we woke up and all randomly agreed to go to Magic Mountain on a whim.

Romney talked me in to going to the scariest rides. All of which I kept my eyes closed breathing in my nose and out my mouth as calm as I could....YELLING
Oh the things I do for LOVE...

Taylor is so mysterious.....just like her tubes.
At least she is consistent.
The boys navigated us through the park.
There were a couple of rides us girls sat out on.
No thanks guys you go ahead...we'll be in the bathroom puking!
However, we LOVED the ride GOLIATH.
Favorite of the day for sure!!!

Taylor and I never had to worry about the "no expectant mothers" rule on these fun rides.
But one day we're going to be mothers, some how, some way!
and we're still going to be
***Lets cheer Taylor on, she had to surgically remove a tube from her last IVF cycle. That darn embryo nuzzled into her tube not her uterus....stubborn little thing***
