Back to Chicago!

At the end of July, we headed back to Chicago for my sister's bridal shower. (The hostesses put together a beautiful little luncheon at Naperville Country Club for the bride-to-be. Katharine and Jarey received so many gifts that they had to get creative with how to bring everything back to Oregon with them!)

In just five days time (and with a six-month old in tow), we managed to accomplish an unbelievable number of things on my sister's wedding to-d0-list, including buying my bridesmaid's dress (a Vera Wang!) and matching shoes. But of course we also found time for some non-wedding-related activities. The highlights:

- Introducing John to his Uncle Ethan and Aunt Lindsay! Ethan and Lindsay drove out from the city to meet us for dinner at our favorite Irish pub, Quigley's. John took to his uncle right away, and now likes him better than his parents (sadly, I'm not joking).

- Hanging out with John's other grandparents! (In the same week, John got to see ALL of his grandparents, something which had never happened before!)

- Going to a Cubs game at Wrigley! This was John's third MLB game already! As you might imagine, the weather for this game was WAY better than the weather for the previous two in Texas.

  1. Great pictures! But I think you forgot to mention that John actually likes Jarey and I best :)
