Cathy: Weekend in Chicago

Over the summer I spent a few days with some girlfriends in Chicago. Holly just had a baby in December, Andie had a rough month at work, and Rachel works long hours all the time. It was just about us, and relaxing, and shopping, and eating, and, well, you get the picture. We had fun. Probably too much at times. It was beautiful weather as you can see from the pictures, though I don't have any group photos because I didn't trust anyone enough to hand over my camera. It was a great weekend, and I hope they all had as much fun as I did.

If not, that would make me really lame.

The train wasn't as frightening as I thought it was. Brought back this eerie comfort of my grandfather from Chicago actually.

This cracks me up.

Grant: Just Because He's Cute

I just thought these were precious. And wanted to show off my adorable kid.

Maybe it's just the oufit, but he looks froggy.

What?! You don't pose your kid in grubby laundry baskets?


Grant: He Likes Bubbles!

Whom I hope he never brings home:)

We spent an afternoon outside blowing bubbles. Grant really liked it and I think we did, too. It was nice to enjoy such a simplicity.

One of the great things about having a kid? You have an excuse to act like one.

Grant: First Hair Cut

Grant had his first haircut on August 21, 2009. And is ready for a second actually. (Yes, he is Ron's). We got a few pictures of it, and saved a lock of hair, which I find moderately creepy, but protocol. Ron says I can't shave Grant's head yet, because he "needs to enjoy it for as long as he can". One of these days though, I have a feeling he'll be sporting a mohawk. (More Mr. T, than punk rock of course).

Family: The Most Important Thing

We are blessed to have a wonderful family. Every one of our family members has helped in making us the people we are today. (I can hear you laughing.) I just thought it might be nice to add some pictures of family members Grant has had the pleasure of hanging out with recently. If you are not pictured below, you will be in the future. That is a threat AND a promise.

Kyla and Andrew!

Grandpa, Daddy, and Andrew!


Aunt Nancy and Great Grandma!

Great Grandma!
