A Busy, Beautiful Fall Day

Our second day in Chicago had a bunch of firsts and some more yummy encounters – this time with friends! We ticked off a key activity – deep dish pizza with friends – and took in some Halloween fun!

Weekday Birthdays

While October always brings tons of fun, it’s even better to make the most of a weekday birthday! This year, both boys celebrated midweek birthdays. And we did our best to make them special days that broke from the routine!

Back to Chi-Town

After a seven-year hiatus, we made it back to Chicago – a first for one of us! It was a super quick weekend, but we packed in what we could, including plenty of good eats and lots of fun sights!

A Poke-Ball Blast!

Unlike last year, C wanted a party closer to home and with more of his friends. So, we created a Poke-ball, Pokemon basketball, party right at home. There was a ton of energy throughout the evening, surely a good time had by all!

A Decade of PACE

For the past decade, we’ve seen babies grow into full-on tweens. Yet, it seems like all in a flash! From their first couch picture to their most recent soiree, the PACE friends always seem to have a good time!

Fall Festival Pros

The more you hit up a place, the more you learn how to maximize your fun. We did just that with another trip to Cox Farms. All in all, it was our seventh trip. We hit all our highlights in record time and made the most out of our fall fair day with cousins!

Apples, Apples and More Apples

Not since Colin was in utero had we been to Hartland Orchard, but the visit was worth the wait! We had our pick of apples, some cider doughnuts, a tractor ride and lots of treats to make afterwards!

Fall Sports!

Back to school and back to weekends and weeknights of sports! Colin is keeping busy with baseball and flag football, while Owen is running around the soccer field with his classmates. Here are some early adventures this season…

Back to (The Same) School

It’s back-to-school time, and for the first time since summer 2018, the boys are in the same place! O started with a brand new teacher to Glebe and new friends-to-be, while Colin is an old pro. Here’s to a good school year!
