Yesterday we took the Irish cousins downtown to attend a Catholic Mass. They wanted to go there instead of to our church. I took issue with it and lost. It wasn’t that bad. I’m not a very good sport when it comes to missing out on my own church on Sunday morning. My kids had a blast though and I guess that’s what made it worth it. They loved all of the things to see and the huge crowd. We tried to sit near the back but ended up in the middle. The ushers led us there. I only had to get up once with Peace because she started fussing. The boys were awesome. Sarah and my wife kept them both very busy and quiet. After Church we hit this amazing buffet restaurant Peach and Green. They have an open kitchen concept and it was a lot of fun to see the food prep. My boys loved it.

After we ate we all went to change clothes at the condo then we made our way to our River cruise! Man is that a fun time. All we had to do was wrangle the kids. My boys loved being on the boat. We sat in the back so we wouldn’t bother the rest of the group. We had such a great time learning about the history of Chicago and seeing the skyscrapers up close all at once. Everyone on our tour said it was great. That was probably the 5th or 6th time I’ve done a river cruise. Our out-of-town guests loved it and took a ton of photos. After we finished that we all went down and hung out at the Navy Pier before they took off for the airport.

I just uploaded all of our photos from this weekend onto our Family Facebook page if ya’ll want to go see how much fun we had around Chicago. We loved hosting the Irish and London families and I hope we can see them again soon. It will be much easier when we live in Paris. My wife said I did a great job with everyone even though it was a week early.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for a fun work week! Happy Monday!
