A Quick Visit to Chicago!

posted on: Saturday, March 26, 2016

Can you guys even believe that Easter is tomorrow? It always seems to sneak up on me when it happens in March right after St. Patrick's Day. I figured I'd squeak in this post before the Easter onslaught begins ;) These photos are from last weekend when we took the kids to Chicago for a few short days to meet brand new baby Juniper and visit with family outside of the city. 

The river still hanging on to that last bit of green hue from St. Patrick's Day 

                                The boys are so much bigger than the last time we took them! 

Shake. Shack.

and then...Juniper! 
pretty sure Ever thought she was a doll, and didn't like it one bit when we took her away from her

Thank you, Colin and Elizabeth, for sharing your baby, your baby's toys and your weekend with us.

It was pretty chilly out, but that didn't stop the kiddos from enjoying the neighborhood park. Like, really, really enjoying it. Ha.

They ran out even more energy once we got them home to the b-ball court. 

Any calories expended on the court were quickly replaced the next day when we met friends for brunch at Mindy's  

So I guess that's the only picture we got with Allison in it? And none with Matt. But we did however manage to get copious amounts of photos of the ten dollar mugs of hot chocolate, so... #priorities I guess. ;)

mushoom flatbread, brussel sprouts and poutine at Fork!

Oren could not have been any more excited about riding the train. It was adorable.

Group photo at the bean, as you do. Oren only partially participating.

And we had so much fun visting Maggie Daley Park for the first time. The boys would have spent the whole day there if we'd have let them. Also, this might be my favorite photo from the trip. Elizabeth snuggled up with Juniper in the carrier, looking off into the distance while Josh and Ever completely wipe out at the bottom of the slide in the background. 

Just a couple of dads with their daughters putting the hugest smile on this mama's face.

And there you have it. One more fantastic Chicago trip is in the books and I'm already counting down the days until the next time we visit. Back soon with photos from tomorrow, have a happy Easter, everyone!!!
