although soon enough Rafi was keen to get back on the road... Posted by Picasa

and the sears tower looks on Posted by Picasa

although it required a lot of conecentration to get the digging just right Posted by Picasa

to the fun of everyone involved Posted by Picasa

and copious digging followed... Posted by Picasa

and then there was the beach... Posted by Picasa

'what's the password?' Posted by Picasa

'now, how do we get on the slide from here exactly?' Posted by Picasa

although Rafi was far more interested in the instant gratification of getting on the slide half way up... Posted by Picasa

Daddy managed to corral both girls up the steps to the slide... Posted by Picasa

Freya, meanwhile, provided a masterclass in stair climbing and descending Posted by Picasa

thrill seaker Rafi didn't need much persuading to go down the slide Posted by Picasa

while Freya showed Daddy the ropes on playground... Posted by Picasa

we did get out to yet another playground between the showers, where Rafi again showed off her abilty to pretty much climb anything... Posted by Picasa

and when you are a little under the weather there's nothing better than pillows, bears, and some noggin channel... Posted by Picasa
