Full on fall

This weekend we played with leaves, picked up pinecones and enjoyed those last rays of sunshine before it got too cold to stay out. And then we went inside and helped ourselves to warm mugs of hot apple cider. Milk for the little one, who will be two in a couple short months. In my eyes, he is still so much a baby, but when I look at these photos, I can also see a boy. Oh, how I wish time would slow down. Happy fall to you all!

Chi-town!

After years of Chicago staring at us from our bucket list, we finally get to check it off. But not without thanks to our dear friends, Paul and Melina, who decided to have their wedding close by and to our amazing family who watched Quentin for us while we spent the weekend away. Thank you! Here was our weekend in a couple of snapshots… A drive-by shot of Wrigley Field. Where can you park around there?!The John Hancock Center  was surrounded in clouds when we arrived, so no observatory for us. Womp womp.  We left for the D.C. airport at 4:30 a.m., so when we finally made it into the city, we were understandably pretty hangry. Uno Pizzeria & Grill to the rescue…  Pizzas apparently take 35-45 minutes to make, so you can order up front while you wait for a table to open. I’m usually a thin-slice pizza kind of gal, but I must admit this deep dish won me over.   I don’t even want to tell you how much we paid to park in this garage for …

Five reasons why we love you, Dada

You’re always willing to play. You make the best animal noises. (Much better than mom’s.) We have great adventures together when it’s just the two of us. You will read “The Foot Book” to me 10 times in a row in that funny accent. You kiss me goodnight, every night. These are only five out of a million. Happy father’s day, we love you!
