This weekend was awesome. We stayed in the city and everyone got to do a lot of things they have been wanting to do. We figured out a very good schedule and finally got time to just be with the boys all alone. My wife and I decided to do what most parents do and NOT have a nanny when we went out Lol We lasted 2 hours. It’s just easier with a nanny or two. We tried. I realize how completely spoiled we are now and I just don’t know how we will mange without my 3 wonderful helpers. It’s going to be rough.
We took the boys to 2 places. A toy shop. They were allowed to pick out a few things and we picked out a few extra things so we can donate them to the Children’s Hospital. We went to the Children’s Museum and that was a really cool place. My boys are more into seeing things and just observing. Heston was the only one that wanted to go touch things. Alex stayed in my arms most of the way. When I put him down he just clung to me. Heston got himself a little girlfriend named Nina who followed him all over. It was hilarious. He tried to share something with her but she just took it away from him and he left us all know that was not cool Lol It really was funny.
We hung out at Navy Pier most of today. It really is a huge place and if you have never been to it you need to check it out. So much to do if you don’t mind a face full of wind. I really liked taking the boys around this weekend. We have been doing our best to balance being at home and taking them out. The weather has been pretty cool lately. Nice, sunny, cloudy some days. Hotter than usual. Not bad to be outdoors most days. I’ve taken my dog for nice long walks in the morning and the evening. We have a route we stay on and he really enjoys the time alone together.
My wife is growing our baby and doing a great job. She did eat pizza tonight but that’s fine. She can eat anything she wants as long as she is okay and the baby is too. She doesn’t want to get fat. I thought you did want to get fat during a pregnancy but she said it’s harder to take it off after a baby. Okay. I can’t wait to find out if we’re having a boy or a girl. All exciting stuff.
Speaking of that, we are leaving for Dublin this coming week. A whole week away. What are ya’ll going to do without me! I asked Lindsay to update my page if anything new happens and she said no. She doesn’t care. I said fine. I will just update it when I get back. I try to write a little each night after my boys are asleep. I want to document all I can remember about the trip. If I don’t get time I just try to remember it all and write it out later.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I have a trip early in the morning so I won’t get time to update. That’s why I’m doing it now.
Have a great work week. God loves you and I love ya’ll too!
