Yesterday's photo! It's a lego giraffe in Schaumburg. Jim and I met my madre for Chipotle and Starbucks (chains, of course. It's the suburbs). It's taken at night with my phone's camera, so it's pretty grainy, but do you see this? A giant lego giraffe!
(It was actually the Chicago Polar Bear Club, but they don't have a neat-o logo)
This is Jim just before the Polar Plunge, when we jumped into Lake Michigan on January 1, 2010. It was 15° outside and the beach was covered with snow. We pretty much ran in, dunked out heads under the water, and pulled back out as fast as possible. The rush was incredible, but man was it cold!
