A catch up post - Summer 2012

So...I'm a little behind. Summer flew by and now we have an additional person in our family! But this is our summer in one big long post. Enjoy.


Mario's Italian Lemonade
 
 
 
 
Matt's Dad retired after many years teaching and coaching at Glenbrook South High School
 
 
 
 
31st street beach got a new playground!




 
 
 
We did a little gardening...

 
 
...and grew our first corn! (yes, singular)
 

 
 
Playing in the backyard...what there is of it



 
 
 
Sam doing a little bmx-ing, and skateboarding, and scooter-ing
 

 
 

 
Went to Kansas for my dear friend Kate's wedding! She was a beautiful bride. Hung out with my family first (Mom, Dad, Chance and Katie) and got free haircuts from Katie, who is now in hair school at Eric Fisher!

at my parent's house


 
 





 
 
20 weeks pregnant! At the duck pond in Eastborough

 
 
 
 
 Luella turned 2! We celebrated by going to Glen Ellyn and meeting the Handy family at the train restaurant and going to the park! 

("tiny Sammy" as Luella calls him)




 
dot paints from Grammy and Grandad

tent from Aunt Sarah

tea set from Grandma
 
graduating into a big girl bed...sort of
 
 
A quick visit from our dear old friends, the Russell's, and their son, Toby! These boys were born 2 weeks apart and his mom, Robin, and I are dear old friends...
 
old picture of them
 

 
 
Got a table and attempted to create an IKEA-ish Lego table organization station thing under Sam's bed

 
 
 
Father's day

 
 
 
 
Aunt Laura, Uncle Ben, and cousins Ellie and Jane come for a visit!
 
 
Navy Pier night


 

 The "cousins quartet" as they called themselves. :)
 
 
 
Family Camp at Silver Birch in Wisconsin with the Handy family!










 





 
 
 
City Kids trying to stay cool
 
 
...in the 'hood
 
...at the beach

me being pregnant
 
 
 
Snack time on the counter
 

 
Soccer Camp at Chicago Hope Academy's soccer field

Sam with Coach "Dynamite"
 

Kitchen Renovation
the before

the crazy pregnant lady who decided to take the wall down
 


the men who actually did the job!


the "after"....just what I wanted: no wall!

 
we also took a few walls down in the basement
 
 
 
 
Increasingly bigger belly...
 


 
 

...partly due to Dinkel's doughnuts and Margie's Candy's ice cream
 
 
Discovering paint

 
 
 
Space Camp at our house with Abby and Annabel




 

 
 
 
Lemonade Stands (many times)


 
 
Ice cream from the ice cream truck
 
 
Vacation Bible School at River City Church
 
 
 
 
Trip to the Lincoln Park Zoo



 
 
 
A visit from the Barbar family with a dinner at Ed Debevick's

 
 
Mastering "hanging"

 
 
 
Sam mastering reading 
 
 
 
Waiting for baby boy to be born
 
 
 
 
Peace out...
