Paul had a conference in Chicago a couple weeks ago, so Ryder and I went along for the ride. Here are the highlights, (in random order)....
Tuckered out w/Daddy.Making shadows and touching butterflies w/Daddy at the Children's Museum.
Making friends with another little guy at the non-walker section of the Children's Museum, which is the MOST awesome museum!! We're wishing we lived in Chicago! :(
Ryder playing with his new little buddy...
SOOO Tired!
Swimming at the Sheraton. Look at that studly little man!
Chewing on the camera case...mmmm!
Still chewing!
The view from the pool at our hotel...
Some cool building...
My little chocolate factory worker!!
Mmmm...L'Appetito underneath the John Hancock building...I know I'm making some Evans' jealous!! ;DHey, look at those handsome dudes!
My guy at Navy Pier.He just loves his big yellow chair at the Children's Museum!
Gorgeous view.
Picking his vegetables, good going Bubba!
Underneath the hollow tree.
Playing with Liam.
Playing with another new friend!
Chess, anyone?
Here he was!
Playing with blocks.
Chewing on blocks...
Messy boy!
On the road to Chicago, he was a VERY good traveler!
There's the Misssissippi River behind us...
And behind them.... :)
Well, our trip was awesome! We had good food, played at the Museum tons, saw the Harry Potter exhibit, had pool time, and enjoyed every minute! We definitely want to go back soon!! Thanks Daddy, for needing to go to a conference there, and letting us come! :D
