More Summer Fun

This has been an awesome summer. I have finished my summer term of school, so I have 9 hours of my 34 for my masters completed. I have been asking this question a lot though… Where did this TALL kid come from?

We had some firsts this week like learning to fish! And we like to spend Friday nights playing at Toys R Us.

Happy Father’s Day

Our Father’s Day fun was delayed a few days. Drake was sick all last week, and so we have some awesome family moments planned for our short jaunt to Chicago. Daddy and I are so very excited about this first away family adventure.

My husband is awesome. Friday night he had a “Dudes Night In” with Drake and one of his friends so I could go visit my girls and see a precious 3 month old and friend I haven’t spent much time with since D was born. She had a preschooler, so her house was off limits through all of our RSV isolation periods.

Since we needed to stay in, we decided to have an indoor campout Saturday night! We blew up our air mattress and had pjs, a Eureka marathon, and snacks.

Sunday morning, Drake gifted Daddy with his new “casual kilt” and I ran out to Frisch’s for some biscuits and gravy to bring back to the boys.

We had a blast just hanging out together this weekend in spite of our son’s sniffly summer cold. Wednesday will be our big city adventure. We’ll take the train to Wrigley from our hotel downtown for a tour. Then back to the room for a nap. Then some lunch and shopping on the Magnificent Mile, and a walk on the shores of Lake Michigan and Navy Pier.  Then we’ll head back to Cincy to pick up Gammy’s dog and head back to our home in NKY. No pictures of the sleepover, but I’m sure we’ll get a bunch of our adventures in Chicago this week.

It’s a good preview of what our BIG vacation to Arizona  and the Grand Canyon in two weeks will be like. First plane flight and week away from home. Trying to stay excited and not nervous! I’m still thinking about getting a prescription to be able to present to the TSA guys for his high cal formula needs. 🙂

Grandparents & Aunt Visit: First MLB Game

Nana, Papa & Aunt Amy came to town for a visit! Our first adventure was Drake’s first MLB baseball game on the Sunday before Memorial Day at Great American Ball Park. We had View box level seats  along the right field foul line with a gorgeous view of the stadium and the Memorial weekend boats on the Ohio River.

First game certificate! I love this. We decided to go to the game because my mom grew up in Chicagoland, and she and I are lifelong Cubbie fans. We even have a brick at Wrigley! Drake’s Daddy is a Cincinnatian though and grew up in the Pete Rose Big Red Machine era. It’s a fun rivalry in our house. (Also the Cubs won in extra innings, woo!)

The Beach Boys and John Stamos played a concert after the game.

And we ended the day with some Olive Garden and Drake’s first work of art that didn’t involve eating the crayon!

It was an awesome day. Drake tolerated being out all day much better than I expected from an RSV isolated preemie dude. He even took his nap snuggled in the stands. We did take it easy on Memorial Day and stick close to home though.

It’s so hard living in Kentucky with my family in Texas and Louisiana. Thank God for Facetime and good visits.
