Kraul Reunion in Chicago (July 2004)
I've been to Illinois three times, although one was not a "real" trip:
Family Reunion in 1991
We had a family reunion in Kentucky in 1991 for the Kraul side of the family. On this trip, our family crossed the border into Missouri and Illinois, although I do not remember doing anything interesting on this drive other than "visit" new states.
Girls Trip to Chicago in 2002
I went to Chicago with four of my best girlfriends, including my sister, in the summer of 2002. We had a very packed trip of sightseeing which included a relaxing boat tour on the lake, the Navy Pier, the science museum, a stained glass museum, a self-guided tour of the Loop sculptures, the art museum, a comedy show, and a Blue Man Group show!
Family Reunion in Chicago in 2004
The Kraul family had another family reunion in 2004 in Chicago in honor of Sister Constance's 90th birthday (and 70 years as a nun!). More details can be viewed in this trip report.
