Summer in the city

Here's Sue and the crew. 
Blaise asked for his picture with the giant centipede that apparently roamed IL at one time. There's a lot of bad stuff in our modern world, but hey, no giant centipedes. :)
Checking out some dinosaur fun facts. There were buttons you could push to hear each dinosaur's name. Rosie was all about that. 
We ran/scootered down the new 606 trail. Here are the boys at the end- Kings of the mountain!

Brewer Fever

The season has come to a close. The Brewers played their heart out. We were proud of your improvement, Blaise. 

Gus rides the bus

Gus has been asking to ride a double-decker bus for over a year. Today was the big day. 
Had to wait for it, but sat front row for a bit. 
Gus kept saying "This is fun, Mama."

Hard at work

The boys are beading. Rosie is being crazy and trying to steal the beads. She has personality plus.

Beach babies

Spent the morning at the beach. The water was cold but didn't stop G and R. Here's Gus looking for "seashells." He kept calling rocks seashells because that's what Max and Ruby collected at the beach. 
Construction in the background was 
Exciting to watch! Excavators! Impact hammers! Cranes! 
And the skyline with my girl. She ran straight into the water, wiped out, i pulled her out and she demanded to go right back in. Rosie, you're a tough little lady.
