Baxter and Quincy: Laid Back Bunny Rabbits

They were fairly calm, though I’m not 100% if they’re simply dazed by being in this position. A few years ago, when Liz would trim Baxter’s nails and go through this whole process… Baxter held a grudge. For a few days afterwards, Baxter would keep her distance and would refuse to come near Liz.

Ballsdurdash: Game Night at Ben and Allison’s House

The game goes like this: one player looks through the Slang Dictionary and selects a word. They then tell the other players what the word is, and everyone writes down their own definition on a slip of paper. The person who picked the word writes down the actual, real definition. All the slips are turned in, and the person who chose the word has to read all the definitions out loud.

Babysitting Audrey and Sebastian

On Saturday, Tricia was visiting and showing her friend Katarina a bit around downtown Chicago. While the two of them were checking out the Art Institute, Liz and I were looking after Audrey and Sebastian. For the first half of the morning, I was actually out and about doing errands (borrowing Tricia’s car, since mine is currently at the shop due to hail damage).

Liz, Studying Up and Kicking Back

With the long holiday weekend, Liz and I have been super busy on our own projects. We spent nearly all of Friday and Saturday hard at it – taking the occasional breaks for food. It’s been a lot of head down, music up moments…

Photo Shoot in Frankfort

Over the weekend, Liz and I headed down to Frankfort to participate in some family photos. A friend of Tricia’s is a photographer, and was going to do some group/family pictures for all of us. What normally is a 45 minute trip ended up taking a little over two hours. Moments after we got into the car, we realized that…

Happy 100th Birthday, Grandma Phoebe!

For the grand occasion of my Grandma Phoebe’s 100th birthday, the entire Jung family met up in Indianapolis. There was a large banquet hall rented out, and friends from all over flew in to town to pay their respects, and to help celebrate the big day. Prior to the party starting up, we got the family together to do some…

Up at 5AM, Searching for Treasure at Wolff’s Flea Market

On a whim, Liz and I decided that we wanted to go to the flea market that takes place at Allstate Arena on Sunday. I thought it was called the “Rosemont Flea Market,” but apparently it’s officially known as Wolff’s Flea Market. It had been a long time since I was at Allstate Arena. Last time was in 2009, when…

Garage Sale, and an Early Morning Science Experiment

My parents were in town to visit my Auntie Angela and Uncle Leon. The two of them live in Westmont, where they also have a dental practice (that occupies the first floor of their home). My mom was in town to have some work done, and ended up having two root canals. They were only planning a short visit, but…

Liz Gets Her Wisdom Teeth Removed

Yesterday, Liz went in to Northwestern and had her two top wisdom teeth removed. She’s had the procedure done before, but only for her lowers. The whole morning, given how calm she was and how nervous I was… you’d think I was the one going in for the procedure. Liz preferred to be put under, so she was completely out…

Dinner with Kevin, Molly and Philo

The Seal family has been visiting Chicago, and though we missed them a week or so back… Liz and I were able to catch a dinner with Kevin, Molly and their son Philo. Kevin had a hankering for pizza, so we met up at a Lou Malnati’s near Justin‘s place. There was a bit of a wait, but we hung…

Breakfast on the Go

Liz, on the way to work. As we were walking out the door, I noticed my wife had not one but two slices of bread in her hands. We were running a bit late, and she was having breakfast on the go. For some reason, seeing her double fisting bread made me laugh. And I love the fact that she’s…

Chicago Street Art Show @ Chicago Urban Art Society

A bunch of folks from work were going to attend the Chicago Street Art show in Pilsen… so a few of us made plans to have dinner beforehand, at Skylark. It had been a long while since I was last here. I think it was back in 2004, during the Pilsen Art Walk. Had fond memories of the place, and…
