We took this past weekend and got away for a few nights down in the burbs of Chicago. We had so much fun. We went swimming every day, to the Brookfield Zoo, parks, picnics and most importantly, we all went to church together (being one of three employees for the church, I am usually the first to arrive and the last to leave the site we rent each Sunday). We had a wonderful time. Here are some photos of our trip. Most of them are from the dinosaur exhibit at the Brookfield Zoo. Elijah missed Dixie and asked for her each and every day (the dog). He even cried for her a few times! What a great time we had. Happy 6th wedding Anniversary to my wonderful husband who still amazes and surprises me more and more.
I finally went to get Elijah's pictures taken a few weeks ago. He had been really difficult to take pictures of the last time I went and was not expecting things to go so well! Apparently, skittles is the key. :) I don't use them often for bribes but... I'm learning to use whatever works! Enjoy.

Elijah plays his guitar frequently in our house. One night, he came up with this little song he made up himself after attending church service with us a few times. It took me awhile but when I could finally make out what he was singing, I had to record it. Enjoy!

What have we been up to? We've gone to the zoo several times already with lot's of friends and Elijah's young love, Belle. :) We've also had fun at Mimi and Papa's house for an Easter Egg hunt, Dad's birthday celebration to the Titanic at the Museum and also to the War Memorial. We've celebrated lot's of birthday's and got out in the warm WI weather. We love spring! Enjoy the photos!
