We visited the Museum of Science and Industry today with Marco. I enjoyed looking at the Christmas trees from around the world. The boys enjoyed the train and the airplane :).


And the zoo….


Lincoln Park Zoo Lights 2014

30 Nov

We had so much fun at zoo lights today at Lincoln Park Zoo with Marco! We got to ride the Lionel train, see the lights, and sit on Santa’s lap! The boys told Santa what they wanted for Christmas and did a great job! It was a cold, but awesome day!¬†ZOOLIGHTS2014

Marco Island Thanksgiving 2014

28 Nov

This year, we spent Thanksgiving in Marco Island! The boys loved playing with their cousins and Aunties Caroline and Libby, Uncle Matt, Mimi and Pop a Pop! We missed The Anderson’s and Uncle Mike!

Ethan’s favorite part of the trip was running on the beach and “the dead fish”. Benjamin loved everything and “I want that”! Ben’s favorite part of the trip was golfing. I enjoyed the sunsets on the beach with the kids. Another fun trip to Marco in the books and another two planned!!

Apple Picking 2014!

21 Sep

We had a great time with Libby, The Biardo’s and the Wolken’s Apple picking¬†today! Benjamin loved running through the trees and grabbing the apples from the tree. Ethan became an expert at getting the apples off the gree with his teeth! We enjoyed some warm donuts and the boys had some cider! It was a great trip to Oriole Springs in Twin Lakes, WI!!
