Around Chicago

We made time for another vacation! This time to Chicago. Vacations are getting more difficult to schedule with school schedules, music schedules, and sports.

Still loving public transportation
The kids don't remember it, but there first trip ever was to Chicago when they were just a few months old.

Library Programs

Our local library is amazing. It only has one branch, yet offers so much more than many other libraries. We use it for books, videos, and the other typical things. They also let you rent technology - 3D pens, programmable robots, and  maker kits. They have areas for different ages of kids to play when taking a break from reading. They also have great programs. These are pictures from one of the programs last year where you could meet animal ambassadors.

Well, hi there! 

So cute entertaining!

Wordless Wednesday

Swim Lesson

Tuesday, June 20, 2017


Sweet Daughter loves sports. She wanted to try out a basketball camp in the summer. If you know us, you realize we aren't tall people. But if she wants to try it she can.

First day of camp - she could have gone to play with the girls or the kids her own size, but why?

By the second day she was scoring. She is the one in the blue shorts/black shirt (the tiny one)
