This time we decided not to wait until the bed was being scaled with a single leap over, and got Sydney her own bed. She’s been really good at sleeping on the floor mat at Grandma’s house so we thought she was ready. We waited for it to be assembled before we brought her into […]

We spent a few hours Saturday afternoon in Millennium park. I’m always amazed at how beautiful Chicago is in the summer and how much it has to offer. We had a impromptu picnic on the lawn, let the kids roam free and had a great time. A few photos are here, the rest are on […]
