First time in a pool!

Brady started swim lessons the day we got back home. We almost skipped it, but it was a good opportunity for Daddy to go with Brady. He was a little unsure how he felt about the chilly water, but Dad made him smile ;)

He isn't a big fan of the pool... about 15 minutes into each class he says, "bye-bye" to the instructor and other kids in the class. It's a lot of work to get him ready EVERY DAY (yes, lessons are every day M-Th, yikes!), but hopefully they'll pay off in the long run. He might even be able to blow bubbles by the end of this week!

Boston/Maine trip

During our Chicago "vacation", Matt and I got away for a few days to the East Coast, for our friends Matt & Brandi's wedding. We flew into Boston and stayed a day/night to do the touristy thing because I'd never been to Boston, then took a scenic drive up to Brunswick, Maine via Lake Winnipesaukee (yes, from "What About Bob?") The wedding reception took place at the Maine Maritime Museum, right on the ocean. It was beautiful!

It was great to spend "grown up" time with our friends, but we missed Brady like crazy and we couldn't wait to get home to see our little man!

Sweet Home Chicago

We just returned from a whirlwind trip to Chicago and Boston/Maine and are trying to get readjusted to life back in Cali. We had an amazing time with family and friends and are missing everyone terribly! Why does time have to go by so quickly?!

Brady loved spending quality time with his Gamaws and Gampa/Papa, Aunts, Uncles and his adorable baby cousin "Aubee", and we are so thankful for Matt's family taking great care of him while Matt and I attended his friend's wedding on the East Coast (separate post to come).

It took about an hour for me to get all the photos from our trip downloaded (587 pics total!), so I obviously cannot post all of them here. But, I have to post a few of the highlights, so here we go...

Playing his new favorite game, Ring Around the Rosey

Mowing the lawn with Papa (yes, it's dusk)
