St. Paddy's and Melting Pot

Mike and I headed to Chicago for St. Paddy's Day weekend (see pics that follow). We had a great time as always. We took the train from Ann Arbor to Chicago. I have to say that riding on the train was a lot less stressful than driving and had more leg room then flying. I was able to finish my hat for the Shamrocking weekend and start one for Liz (which I finish the next day).
Like the hat? I do! And I already have an order to make another (which yes is on the needles). We took the trolley that Jon's mom rented from place to place and she even made song books. I know it sounds a bit silly but it was a lot of fun. We all sang Irish songs (or at least tried) with Jon leading the singing.

Here is Liz and Jon at the first place...

Liz and I in our new hats!
It was great to spend more time with Jon and Liz on Sunday and just hang out. We got back home on Monday. On St. Patrick's Day we went to the Red Wings game. (GO RED WINGS!) The Red Wings won but it was not the best game I've seen. Mike and I really enjoyed the crowd and the energy at the Joe. (Joe Louis Arena) Maybe one day we will be able to have season tickets.
On my birthday we went to the Melting Pot with my in-laws. www.meltingpot.com
We had "the Big Night Out." I love fondue! Who doesn't like dipping delicious food in cheese, oil, or chocolate.
I also want to thank everyone for the cards and facebook birthday wishes. It was great to hear from everyone even though I am far from a lot of you. I think that is the scoop for now.
