At the airport eating a breakfast of champions

Mattingly and I took at mini trip to Chicago to visit Aunt Em, Uncle Eric and cousins Ella and Edie. It was great fun! We really wish we were able to see each other more. The weather was hot but we took advantage and the kids went in the pool and Eric made some iced coffee. We took some pictures at Garfield Park which was almost unbearable between the heat and the pollen all over and us not being able to get the 3 kids sitting and smiling. Mattingly was able to watch Ella during her last tumbling class. He cheered her on. And on Saturday when we arrived to went to the farmer's market to have some yummy donuts and buy some asparagus and flowers for the yard. I loved holding Edie! ALMOST makes me want another one....until I see how hard 2 kids are and how tired you are getting up at night. She is such a precious little girl! She liked being tucked away in a sleepy wrap that makes you sweat. Mattingly and Ella had their arguments but all in all I think they really liked hanging out. Mattingly also loved their cat Charlie. He would call his name and say "Ah go? Charlie?". Ella would help look for him or try to coax Mattingly into her room by saying the cat was in there. =) Thanks for all the yummy foods and the birthday celebration E4! Instead of a cd of pics can you just print pictures out for me and I'll pay you back? =)
