A Saturday in Chicago

This past weekend we took a little family trip up to the big city of Chicago. We were there to celebrate the baptism of our beautiful niece (more on that tomorrow), but we went early to spend the whole weekend with the Tomaw's.

We were all excited to spend time with our favorite Tomaw's and we couldn't wait to meet Miss Olivia!! All week we had been talking about seeing the baby, and Karter was eager to hold, kiss and talk to baby Olivia!

And isn't she a beautiful little thing!! In our family of all blue, it was so cute to see a little pink!

Jonah and Karter didn't waste anytime playing together and having fun together. While we were all getting ready for an afternoon at the Children's Museum, they had a little break watching cartoons!

We spent much of the afternoon at the Kohl Children's Museum. If you are looking for something to do, I highly recommend it...just maybe don't plan your visit on a Saturday, it was pretty busy!

Of course Karter found a book for Aunt Joscelynn to read, unfortunately for her it was in Spanish!

At the library station they had computers that you could play games on it, and boy did he love having a computer he could actually play on!

We had a great time at all of the stations, but hands down our favorite one was the miniature supermarket.

Karter had a great time driving his cart around getting his groceries. (I think this stop made the most impact one him, this morning he was pretending his cars were going grocery shopping!)

After exploring the whole museum we went back to Jake and Joscelynn's to play and have dinner before heading back to our hotel for the night! We were all exhausted and went right to sleep that night!!

So glad you were able to go up for Olivia's baptism! What a bright-eyed baby!!! I know you had a fun time with 4 little ones under the age of 3!
