Chicago

Randall was excited about the move, about the air travel, about hotels, about the place we moved into, as usual. The city gave us a nice surprise the second day after we arrived as we ran into Chicago’s 60th Air and Water Show. The airplanes went loop-de-loop left and dipsy-doodle right over the lake, performing amazing stunts. An F-35 fighter jet roared soared through the sky right above the crowd. Spectacular as it might be for adults, its loud noise turned out to be a little scary for some little ones, like Randall.

Mt Rainier

We hiked along the lakes and up the mountain, enjoyed the gorgeous view at the Reflection Lake as well as the beautiful Narada falls, yet all Randall cared about was the snow!

Negotiation

Randall is happy feeding the ducks with his own snacks until he suddenly realizes that “there is not much left”. “No more!”, he tells the ducks, but they seem quite determined and won’t leave. How about “you can have one more and that’s it”? They stay for more. Randall ends up giving all his goldfish away. Now both Randall and the ducks are happy.
