Vacation Update # 4 - Northern Baptist Seminary

We made it to Chicago and we stayed at Northern Baptist Seminary where Doug attended back in the 1980's. Matthew kept saying we were staying at the cemetary! = - )
We stayed with Paul, Marilyn and Hannah (Doug and Marilyn were students together in the "old days" and Marilyn now works at the "cemetary." We enjoyed delicious deep dish pizza and catching up with old friends.
While we were in Chicago we were able to see the 17 year cicada! Wow, talk about an experience - they are SO loud, flying around everywhere and the dead ones were covering the ground around the trees. We screamed like city folk and managed to take a few pics.
