Drew's baseball season ended in the middle of July. It was a long season, but we had so much fun with the other families that I am actually sad the season is over. I can't believe I am saying that after 40+ games!
Because we had a free weekend once baseball ended, we made a last minute decision to go up to Chicago for a White Sox game a couple of weekends ago. Actually, Andy and Drew went to the game and Kayley, Ryan and I went to Barrington to meet Mel's baby Eli. SUPER CUTE baby! And he is such a GOOD baby. Never a whimper and totally content in my arms! And he sleeps through the night already. I thought I had good sleepers!
After the game, we met back up with Andy and Drew at our hotel. We walked to dinner, rode the train (highlight of Ryan's trip) to get ice cream, and then walked along the river back to the hotel. I love Chicago in the summer. I am not a big fan in the winter, but the summer is great there!
The kids had a couple of fun field trips last week so I snuck out of work for a little bit to see them at a couple of them. We actually have more fun things for kids to do in this town than I give it credit for!
I took the kids to Iowa last Saturday to meet Mom and Matt. They drove the kids back to the farm for a week. Ryan was so excited to go. It was his first visit to the farm without us and he could not have cared less that Andy and I weren't going to be there. They have been having a great time from what I can tell. Grandma and Grandpa are likely a little tired, but I am sure they are loving it too!
