Well we're a family on the go (or as some say on the run) and the weekend of Valentines Day was no exception. Saturday we headed to Chicago - Dan and Connor hit the Shedd Aquarium while I went with my friend Becky for a dress fitting for her wedding and to try on bridesmaid dresses.
Dan and Connor had a great time at the Shedd Aquarium. We had packed the umbrella stroller thinking it would be easier than our regular one and turn out we were right in that thinking but failed to realize that if people are standing in front of the stroller Connor could see nothing. There were apparently a bazillion people at the Aquarium that day so Dan spent the majority of the day trying to push the stroller, hold the diaper bag and hold Connor all at once. Needless to say they were both worn out by 3 PM when they picked me up!
After that we headed to Peru for a charity function our friends TJ and Hillary were co-chairs of. The event was for the Youth Services Bureau (http://www.ysbiv.org/) and turned out to be a great night with great friends. Connor attended the event also and was perfectly content being passed lap to lap. I've been slacking on my photog skills so I promise I'll start to get better about taking more pictures.
Then on Sunday morning we woke up bright and early and headed to Naperville, IL. My college roomate and one of my very best friends, Jenny Harz, lives in NYC and was in town for Presidents Day visiting her family. The Harz's were so kind to host us for Valentines Day - we had a wonderful meal and watched the Illini game and the Olympics. We won't discuss the Illini game - but overall it was a great day!
Then it was to Milwaukee we went - I swear this was a weekend where every time Connor woke up he was in a different location! But hey, is there any better sign of love than to spend the weekend all over with all sorts of different people who love you? It was a long and tiring weekend but worth it and I don't think any of us would change a thing about it!
