A visitor!

I was talking to my cousin at Christmas time and he said that one of the fun things he'd like to do for his wife was to get her a plane ticket. She got to come on vacation here to the tropical weathered mid-west (HA!) to visit all of us and then spend some time with a friend of hers in Indiana. So this past week we had the privilege of having Ressa around. :)

This is her and I.

She brought Dance Dance Revolution with her, this is Jessica rockin' it out.

Abram just looks so much older to me now that we've buzzed his hair short!

Yesterday we loaded up the kiddos in the van for a field trip up to...

The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago!

Don't we look like a big crew? :P


Man (girl) eating fish!

Seahorses :)

Everyone promptly crashed out in the van on the way home too, that's always nice for a long drive.

It's been a fun week of girl talk, banana grams games and laughs. Can't wait 'til we see her again!

I sure do wish I could come over and see you! It sounds like so much fun....

That aquarium looks great. I showed the pics to Sofia and she said "cute" to every one of them! Ha. She's interesting at almost 5 years old!

You look great and boy, do you need an Ergo baby carrier. You ought to look them up. I wouldn't be without mine, after three years of really wanting one and finally getting one last year. Check them out!

What a lovely treat getting a visit!
That museum looks wonderful - what a great place to go. I love the picture in your car - it's got plenty of room!
Hope you are keeping well - I finally have my computer back & am enjoying catching up with my favourite blogs!
Have a great day

I had a wonderful time! I miss all the hugs and love from the kiddos. Gordy and I are going to play bananagrams with scrabble tiles tonight. I'm addicted :)
