Beach Boy

Here are a few snapshots from our time with Tommy's family at Lake Michigan. The picture of Blaise crawling to meet the ladies on the beach is my fave.

Golden Boy

Tommy: Hi, it's my golden birthday. I'm trying to watch the 13th inning of the Cubs game, but my wife is forcing me to open my presents.
Ping: May I assist you?
Laura: Thumbs up for Funfetti cake.
Blaise: Zzzzz (11:30 p.m. is way past bedtime.)

Happy Birthday to our Golden Boy!

Chai. So hot right now.

Blaise got the leftover foam at the bottom. Yum.

Summer Checklist

We made a family checklist for the summer of '09 and threw on there anything we had been wanting to do, but just hadn't gotten around to. One of our first checklist outings was to the Soup Box (a soup place downtown that we've always meant to try) followed by cones at McDonalds. We ended up walking home along the water and stopped to dip Blaise's toes in.

Happy 4th of July

We found Uncle Sam (minus the creepy beard) at Centerville's street fest.
