Saturday was swimming lessons and errands around the neighborhood.
Sunday we had a picnic at 12 street beach in Chicago, then spent a few hours at the Shedd Aquarium and dinner outside at Park Grille at Millennium Park. Then we explored the park and finally headed home.
The weather was gorgeous and it was a good day to hang out in the city. Everyone was in such a great mood and it is easy to forgive Chicago for her bitter winters when she gives you such glorious Summers.
Monday, Joe went to a BBQ with Dylan at Aunt Jori's house. Dylan had a blast playing with all his cousins. Matthew and I were a little under the weather so we stayed home and napped.

The Bean. It's so sparkly!
Checking out the free concert at the Pritzker Pavilion.
Mini movie of Matthew at The Bean. He is having a blast looking at his own reflection. At the very end of the video you can see that he has his "poo poo face", or in other words he is having a BM. Nice.

Open up this picture for the full effect. I love the pure joy on their faces and the lighting on the grass and through the trees is beautiful.
Motorcycle crazy. Staring him off early. Too early.
Cousins hanging out. They are going to be trouble in about 10 years!
