The first matter of business this morning is to say that if your name isn’t LittleMyoo then unfortunately you’re not the winner of our Moen Kitchen Faucet Giveaway… (Congratulations LittleMyoo! Check your inbox!)
No real post today… just wanted to share some pics from our weekend adventure to Chicago to visit my brother Nathan, SIL Kelly, and nephew Miles! I was TERRIBLE and didn’t take a single picture all weekend… but luckily Kelly had my back and snapped a few pics for us to treasure forever.
The girls first time at a beach! It was a gorgeous day, but still not warm enough to jump in the water. But they had a blast touching the sand and picking up shells. They both wanted to get in the water BAD. Paisley wasn’t digging the feeling of sand between her fingers. Nephew Miles didn’t mind though!!
We got to visit ‘the Bean’… the girls loved seeing their crazy distorted reflections. Does anybody know the story behind ‘the Bean’ in Chicago? There has to be an explanation for why a giant reflective bean is a tourist attraction. I’m convinced it’s a two-way mirror and people are inside laughing at all the silly tourists.
We also painted 3 backsplashes over the weekend, and didn’t get home last night until 11:30… we are T.I.R.E.D. The girls did surprisingly well with all the busyness of the weekend, but the ride home was less than pleasant for all parties. I think they were pretty over-stimulated and so tired of being in the car. It goes without saying that we’re kicking back and doing nothing today.
When we go away for the weekend, I’m completely off the grid and don’t even THINK about responding to comments on the blog, or returning emails. WHAT BLOG? But I’ve been seriously considering getting a smart phone so I can jump on the Instagram bandwagon. Especially since several readers have asked for more pictures of the girls and our family. Are you guys on Instagram? Or is it a dying trend?
