A photo opportunity with our uncle from the Philippines.
This is Tito Teody with the family before we left for SFO! We finally meet in person.
One of my favorite summers! It was our first time in Chicago. We got to see a lot in a span of five days: The Art Institute, Wrigley Field, Millennium Park, Sears Tower, etc. The weather was perfect! Humid at times, but we all did well with it. Here are a few photos from that vacation.
