A night in the Windy City

Take two.... now everyone is happy.

Take one... Alexandra is asleep and Annabelle didn't get any Starbucks hot chocolate:(

No trip to Chicago with a 9yr old girl would be complete w/o going to the American Girl store.

One last shot with the giraffes at the Lincoln Park Zoo.

Peter's sister Kathryn and baby Elizabeth joined us on our trip. It was great to see some of the west coast family.

Olivia helped Annabelle see things from her vantage point.

This lion put on a real show for us. He got and roared a few times, laid down for a while, got back up and repeated his roaring. It was like he was being paid to put on a show every 15 min.

This one is for my mom:0)

Late Breaking Pumpkin Patch Pictures!

Okay, here are some NEW PICTURES to satisfy you all!! Our annual trip to the pumpkin patch was better this year because Peter and Grandpa came.

Also adding to the excitement was what everyone expects to see at a PUMPKIN Patch --- a smiling CAMEL! How weird is that.

BTW, Annabelle is NOT picking her nose. MY kids don't do that!!! She is just itching it... She told me.
