Last week, we made a day trip to Chicago to spend a day at the beach with Aunt Janessa and Eric! (It was a surprise to Janessa!) Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate with those plans but we still had an awesome day exploring Navy Pier and Millennium Park (our first time to both!) and any time spent with Aunt Janessa is always a blast. 

Avery had the best time walking the pier, dancing in the park, and flirting with himself (and a fancy little girl in pink) at Cloud Gate! It made my whole week to see our little man having so much fun toddling around such a big city :) 
His favorite thing?  The manhole cover!



  1. Avery is so very blessed... and so very loved! Beautiful pictures of a beautiful family :)

    P.S. Enjoy the ease of traveling with one... yes I said ease... because traveling with two, WHOLE different ball game!!! lol!

  2. Aww, thanks Amy! We are the blessed ones. And YOU are super-mom!! You should do a blog post with 'travel tips' or something, I'm getting nervous to take Avery on his first plane ride in a couple weeks, and you've done it so many times - and with TWO in tow!
