    Naperville, IL

    June 24, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 72 °F

    Today was a real treat. We travelled to Jenn's hometown of Naperville, Illinois. She wasn't born in Illinois, she was born in New York, but this is where she grew up.

    We visited the two houses she lived in, as well as the downtown Naperville River Walk. Along the way we stopped in the park near her first house with the "giant" hill the kids used to sled down.

    Jenn and I visited Naperville in 1996 and when we went to the park she said, "Where is the hill?" 😊The picture in the gallery for this post is of Jenn and Quinn standing at the base of the hill. To be fair, for a little kid, it is a good sized hill. I tried to get a video of Quinn rolling down the hill, but he wouldn't do it. Maybe next time.

    The River Walk was very pretty. There was an art exhibition around town. A lot of benches made from famous children's books.

    It was a good visit. Now the kids can picture the places when Jenn's family tell their stories.
