American Marketing Association Summer Educators' Conference, Chicago, Illinois

Whenever the American Marketing Association Summer Educators' Conference is held close to home (such as in Chicago, Illinois), I try to attend.  As it turns out, this year the dates corresponded to the last weekend both girls would be home before heading off to college.  So, we made a family trip out of it.  The girls went shopping and to the Shedd Aquarium while I went to the conference hotel.

Since we made plans to go to Chicago, we decided to extend our time together and spend some time in Traverse City, Michigan.  We stayed at a hotel on the East Bay.

While in Michigan we climbed a HUGE sand dune, played at the beach, ate lots of food, and went on a wine-tasking tour of several Old Mission Peninsula Wineries.
