Back to the days...

On our flight home from our trip to Boston, we decided to extend our 1 hour layover in Chicago, to a 6 hour layover so that Quinn could show me his childhood stompin' grounds. His family moved to Utah from Chicago when he was 12 and he has not been back to visit since. He was so excited to visit his old house, elementary school, and swimming pool in the cute little city of Geneva, IL. The day was filled of stories and memories of Quinn's childhood. It was fun to see where he grew up and to hear all of his stories as he walked me around to each place. Quinn posing in front of the steet sign that he and his brother Abe tied a neighbor kid to so that they could see how long it took him to untie himself.
This is the fire hydrant that Quinn knocked his teeth out on when he went over the handlebars of his bike.
The big white house on DeerField Way, lots of fond memories in that place.

That is the most picturesque home. Quinn totally grew up in midwest suburbia, I love it.
