Grosse Pointe Light house and Lord of the Rings at Ravinia

Hello again everyone,

This latest entry comes from a little getaway to the northern suburbs of Chicago. Lord of the Rings at Ravinia! What a night! We left a little early, to beat traffic, and ended up stopping at Grosse Point Lighthouse on Lake Michigan. After driving past Northwestern and Loyola University we arrived at this great location. We have always wanted to go to there, and we finally did. This was Gwen's second light house, after Grand Haven. And now we present to you Grosse Point.

And now the reason we made the trip. We proudly present Lord of the Rings by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. We had lawn seats and a great view of the big screen. The CSO played along scene by scene with the Lord of the Rings, the Fellowship of the Ring. It was awesome!!! Gwen's first concert. Dinner and snacks on the lawn, what a night! Enjoy the photos.

What a great afternoon and evening. Gwen was amazing! She fell asleep at intermission and spent the rest of the concert snuggling in Mommy's arms. Cote de Rhone, cheese, crackers, and great company! What a great way to wrap a summer evening.

Until next year, and Two Towers, keep that shutter moving,

Joe and Nikki
