Jay had Friday off so he took Jake to Six Flags Great America. Jake was able to ride most of the big rides like 'Superman: Ultimate Flight' and 'Batman the ride'. He said that these two and 'American Eagle' were his favorites. The weather was great, not too hot and the longest they waited in line was an hour but most of the lines took much less to get through. They were at the park from the time it opened until almost the time it closed and had a blast! Jake said it was the best day of his life this year! We also went to the Morton Arboretum were they have this exhibit of life-sized animal houses. You can prowl on the prairie, trek through the wetland or romp in the woodland to visit 11 different homes. Our family found this exhibit really fun and interesting. Overall, we had a great weekend!
