Happy Valentine's day!

I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with the loves of my life, minus one...
We took a little family trip to Chicago! Other than a few meltdowns, from Jud and I, it was a really fun trip!

We went to the Shedd Aquarium

The kids favorite part by far seemed to be the penguin play area! Yeah, never mind the thousands of gigantic fish tanks, the dolphin and whale show, give them a plastic egg and a costume and they are all set!

Then we decided to visit the Lego store! That was a HUGE hit! The boys where in heaven, running from one thing to next! The girls were content building!

Jack loved the magic scanner that showed the finished product when you held up the box!

A few bags full of new legos later, we were onto the next stop!

Caroline decided that rather than stopping at the American Girl store, we should head right to the Field Museum! Have I told you how much I Love this Girl?

Emma explaining things to the boys!

The little photographer! I think she took about 500 pictures on the trip!


Sam kept us all smiling the entire time! I'm thinking it's time to sign this kid up for some acting lessons!

Your family is totally adorable. But what did you EAT? Pizza?

what? why? did we have something on our faces? or just cuz normally everything revoles around food with kids?

we had lunch at the Shedd, dinner at a great Italian resturant, and breakfast was a GREAT buffet at our hotel...then fast food on the way home:) very exciting!
