Ever so kind, our friend, Theresa, had generously given us the run of her house for our days in the Chicago area. That allowed us to just be ourselves! 😉
|These two! So funny together!|
Happily, even Dave was able to join us for breakfast on our last morning together.
Which meant a fun picture of the three of us...
And one with my mom and dad too!
But all too soon it was time to put our things in the rental car and head for the airport. Which meant waving goodbye to my mom and dad. They too would leave just an hour later to continue on their trip in the Midwest to visit other family members.
How crazy to say goodbye to them at Theresa's house!
|I'm SO glad we had that time together mom and dad!!|
The three of us headed for the airport, dropped off our car and jumped on a shuttle bus to our terminals.
One thing led to another and by the time we had to get off for our United flight (Claire was going on to another terminal for her flight) we were laughing so hard I almost missed getting off. Claire was trying to make the same faces as her dad in the selfies we took on the bus and it was absolutely cracking me up!
On one hand it was hard to say goodbye...it always is. But on the other hand, it was SUCH a sweet time with both Claire and my parents that my heart can't stay sad because I'm so full and content.
And I DO get to keep going through daily life with this precious man!
Plus we actually get to see Claire in Colorado next week. How kind the Lord is in letting us have another opportunity to be with her!
