The Time I Spent In

 Chicago was one of the best trips I have been on by far! For starters it is an amazing city and the fact that I got to experience it with all of my friends was just the cherry on top! 
Every summer my young adults group, Doulos goes on a missions trip and it has been laid on the heart of our leader to target the major cities in the United States.  This summer, it was beautiful Chicago! What is so cool about Chicago is that around every corner, you feel like you are in a completely new and different part of the City.  There is Wrigleyville which is crazy because there are so many games going on, then you walk down a block and you have the more hipster stores and eateries and everybody is all about the new thing, you walk down a block in the opposite direction and it is more of a family area with more laid back restaurants.  There are so many different people groups in all the little areas of Chicago also and it is really awesome to see so many sides of one city!

A Slice Of Heaven

This was a day for a spontaneous adventure! Pack a lunch you drive up to the mountains with your mom and pup and you have lunch staring at the beautiful picture that God created for you to enjoy.
Living in Vegas isn't as bad as some may think it is.  We have the beautiful mountains right in our back yards, a lake 45 minutes away and we have The City right down the street.  We are also 4 hours away from California to get our sunbathing on, about 5 hours away from the grand canyon, and 5 hours from the snowy mountains of Utah.  If you think about it, we have it all it just takes a little bit of traveling to get there but the journey is half the fun! 
With the weather turning cooler (finally) it is prime time for Las Vegas.  Perfect time to go for a hike or have a picnic in the mountains and that is just what I did.
