Hello again!

It seems like it has been forever since I've updated everyone on what's happening around our house. For those of you that check this regularly, sorry...

It's hard to believe that it is already May and spring has sprung! We have been spending more and more time outdoors lately. Although we bought our house last May, we didn't really do any yardwork except mowing. We obviously have no idea how to take care of a lawn, however, and are paying the price with lots of annoying little dandelions popping up everywhere! A few trips to Lowes has helped a little....We have also started thinking about new flowerbeds and shrubs. We've found out just how much work having a big yard is!

We took Cameron to his first Cubs games a few Fridays ago and took the opportunity to spend the night in Chicago. Cameron did NOT enjoy the game and was rather antsy, but it was still fun. Gavin at least thought it was great! We ate at the Rainforest cafe that night and Cameron did think that was quite cool and interesting! He got a kick out of the giant fish in the tanks. On Saturday (after the game) we headed downtown to the Chicago children's museum and spent the day there and walking around downtown. We ended up heading over 1.5 miles (from Navy Pier to the Buckingham fountain) to see a fountain that ended up being worked on :( Oh, well, it was fun being downtown and then getting to walk around the lake.

Above are pictures over the last few weeks. I hope you are all having a great week!

Love ya,
