Five on Friday: 7/8/16


I find it very important to note that I wrote this on Thursday, 7/7/16, which is why it is all so frivolous.  It seems so silly and trivial to update today but maybe if you perhaps need a few minutes of distraction I can offer that.  

Been keeping super busy ever since school let out for the summer. Checking out new parks, going to splash pads, and hitting up all the free museum days so I can make up for spending $40 to take the kids to see Finding Dory.

Loving all the swag at the Pride Parade.

Miles' first baseball game at Wrigley.  Go Cubs!

Thursday concerts in the plaza (that's Miles in the red on the lamppost).

Take your kid to work day.

Homemade fudgsicles.  The one on the right was happy after the first bite, then quickly realized I'd snuck in "yucky things" like Greek yogurt and bananas and that was the end of that.

Field Museum

Nature Museum

Anytime anyone would come near this tank Atticus would yell, "NO!!!  My turtle!" and shove them away.  Sweetheart.

Checking out the butterfly exhibit.

Donahue Park, which is fantastic and of course opened right by our old condo a few months after we moved.  Luckily it's just a train ride away.

We've had a revolving door of visitors (which is a good thing, I don't like an empty house) including my parents, in-laws, sister-in-law and fam, and today my sister arrives!

World's most poorly configured seesaw ride.  
Those kids were up there a long time.

Polka dancing at Maifest.

We honestly could just ride around town all day on the train and he'd be entertained.

While my sister-in-law was here, we had what I'll call a triumphant beach day. That is not an exaggeration. We had a group of seven kids who played perfectly together for two straight hours.  This is a minor miracle for this group. The genious was that my brother-in-law set each kid up with a separate job for creating and maintaining a giant sand hole and hill so each kid was busy and focused.  Beach hole for the win!

Another great idea if you need the kids to all get along is to just bury them away from each other.

Atticus came down with an ear infection, fever, and cold which meant we watched a lot of tv while Miles was at camp.  I also got a lot of these looks.

Going back a bit, a few pics from the kiddo's final school assembly and last day of school.

Excited for the weekend and my sister and Square Roots fest!
