I have wanted to post some of these baby gifts b/c I really love them and wanted to share them with you. The first one is a Sugarboo Photobox that I absolutly LOVE!! I think it took me 3 or 4 weeks just to decide which one and what color to order. It hangs in our living room and I read it everyday. I will treasure this gift forever, thank you Linda and Jane!These are too cute! And even thought Wade can't walk I just love putting them on him. He looks so old wearing them. I did get them in a size to big so maybe next summer when he is walking he will still be able to wear them. Thanks you Luanne!

Jack, Wade and I just got back from spending 5 days (Wed-Sun) in Chicago with my Aunts, Mary and Jane. They live right downtown so it's so fun to be able to walk around and take advantage of all the fun things the city has to offer. Chris was going to be in Chicago all week working at U of C but had to go back to GR on Thursday monring. Here we are at a local park by where my Aunt's live. Jack had a blast and didn't want to leave so we bribed him with Jimmy John's.
On Thursday we went to Millennium Park and to Blue Cross Blue Shield where Jane works. In order to get up to her office we had to get out pictures taken and they printed out these passes we had to wear while we were there. Jack got to keep his and he was very proud!!
After visiting Jane we went to Starbucks because Jack had been begging for a milk. These are his favorites so when ever I tell him we have to stop so Mommy can get coffee he responds by telling me we have to stop at Starbucks b/c then I can get coffee and he can get a milk!Starbuck's but I am sure he will follow in his brother's footsteps and beg for milk from Starbacks!
Here we are on Thursday in Millennium Park. Jack loved the Bean! And the pictures turned out pretty fun too!
On Friday we went to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Jack had not been to the Zoo before but has been begging!! The gorilla's were his favorite. He didn't want to leave. We had gotten there early which was really nice b/c we pretty much had the zoo to ourselves.
On Saturday Jane, Jack and I went to the gym in the Morning and then Jane took Jack to Evanston to go kayaking with Jane's friend Moe. Jack has a great time and it was a great little break for me! Mary and I walked to State St and did a little shopping. I was a little disappointed and only got a couple things for the boys. Saturday my sister Becky and her husband Jason came into town for a birthday party for one of Jason's friends so they also stayed at the apartment Saturday night. Sunday morning Jack was pleasantly surprised to find Bec and Jay sleeping on the hide-a-bed. That morning Jack helped Mary make pancakes and then we all got ready and walked to the fountain. There was a nice breeze coming in off the lake so it make the fountains spray go everywhere. Jack loved running into it and getting all wet. It was warm so I joined him a couple times.
We had a great time in Chicago and Jack can't wait to go back but we will give my Aunts a few months to recover!! Thanks for a wonderful time Mary and Jane and we will see you at the cottage for Labor Day!!
