The meeting/barbeque was very fun and the time flew by. Everyone was very nice, but what would you expect from TF members. This is the only picture I managed to get from the barbeque.

After I left the party, me, my sisters and our friend headed to Chicago to see the city. On the way I stopped in at a Home Depot.
I found a rack of these and they looked decent so I bought two.
Then we drove through a really ghetto area before finally arriving in the city.
Here's a pic from the evening boat ride we went on.
Saw a person sleeping under a bridge.
The best part about the city was being able to drive like crap and cut people off because everyone does it there. All in all it was a fun one day trip to the land of Lincoln.
