The week

We went to MI for a couple of days. 
Steph and I walked the girls to Water Street for treats. Brought back sweet memories. The espresso of the day was Rosebud Blend. :)
The boys shared a bed and snuggled. 
We visited Bridget and her crew. It was heaven. Blaise caught a fish. 
But Owen's fish was biggest!
Rosie and the fish. 
Darling Mary Cate. 
On our way home we stopped at the outlets to shop for tommys birthday. The kids were good so they could choose one ride. 
And here's Rosie at Snippets. Girl got bangs! 
The end

Pool day

Things that happened at the zoo

Our little house seems even littler in summer. Most days we get to the point when I realize we need to get out, now! Today that moment came early. So, we escaped to the zoo. 
Fed some cows...
Also, in the farm area we watched a mother pig simultaneously nurse 9 piglets. Wow. 
Rode the carousel. Boys both chose to ride on the chimps. 
Rosie clung to the giraffe. 
As we ate lunch there was a bunch of seagulls trying to steal food. Rosie kept running up to them and trying to touch them. A man sitting nearby said "You better watch that one. She has no fear. When she's 18 she's going to be doing flips on her motorcycle for the X Games." 
Oh my!
Still in pjs. Of course. 
On our way to the car we talked to this nice policeman and petted his horse "Bub."

Burger & Blaise

While the littles napped, Blaise and I took in the Roscoe Village Burger Fest. Behold. 
He chose a massive blue Powerade and a BBQ burger. I don't have many moments alone with just Blaise, and it was nice to chat with him. He still held my hand while we walked through the crowds. Some days he seems grown up so that was precious to me. Attack that burger, Blaiser.
