Windy City, Here We Come

Tomorrow we are heading off to another adventure. What, does that make it like, 13 for the summer? It feels like it. This trip was supposed to be our ONLY traveling this summer. Funny how when you leave your schedule open, many things come in to fill it up.

But I digress. Tomorrow, we are all going to Chicago to meet up with the McReynolds family for an extended weekend. J and I have never been to Chicago, so it will be a brand new experience for us all. I already have an itinerary all planned out, so as not to have a moment of free time, but it includes many many kid-friendly activities. I think the girls are going to have a great time. And Padyn is so excited to be seeing her friend, Liam, again! She keeps talking about when we will get to Liam's house and how he will share his toys with her. I have to remind her that we aren't going to Liam's house; that we are staying in a hotel in Chicago and Liam will be staying in the same hotel. Then she gets all excited that she gets to sleep in the same room as Mommy and Daddy. I'll tell you, Mommy and Daddy aren't super thrilled about that, but we are staying positive. At least we have the time change to our advantage. Going to bed late won't really be late for the girlies.

Anyways, we won't be posting for a while, probably, though we are bringing the laptop and the hotel has wireless, so you never know. But I didn't want to disappoint anyone on Friday when it was quiet around here, so I'll post some Photo Friday pictures early.
These are all from this past weekend when the W girls were staying with us. There weren't too many pictures taken this weekend, but The Girls' Moma may have more an her Flickr account. Enjoy!

Kate wearing the tiara. Unfortunately, it broke shortly after this.Kate and Jalyn playing around on Padyn's bed. Painting time for Padyn...notice the progression. Here she is clothed...And here she is not.And now Coley and Padyn both have no shirts on. They aren't painting anymore, but shirts were deemed unnecessary to the task of watering the geraniums.

Lastly, here's Kate enjoying the slide. She has finally figured out how to go down by herself. Notice her snack cup in her right hand. Can't do anything without a snack, this girl.

I think you must have set the record for trips and visitors this year and it is only half over. I don't know how you have the energy! Can you bottle some up and send it to me.
