family time - part one

June has been and will continue to be the month of family visits. First, Dave's parents came to visit us. Then, my parents the following weekend. And this weekend my sister and her family will be joining us for a long weekend. It has been nice to have people up to show them where we live and do some fun things.

We took Dave's parents to one of our favorite places. It is a hidden treasure off a busy road. We are new to the area so I'm not sure how many people have been there but you wouldn't even know what was behind the small entrance.

This is the University of St. Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary. It is such a beautiful, peaceful place. Dave has enjoyed going to their library to have a different place to study. It is only about 15 minutes away.  Saint Mary's was actually the first institution of higher education offered in the city in 1844 at it's original location.  It opened, here in Mundelein, in 1921 after many years of not being in operation.

Dave's parents, Penny and Stan

We had a nice time walking around the campus a little bit on such a beautiful day with two of our favorite people!
