Big Weekend

My folks came for Easter and we had a huge fun filled weekend. Starting on Thursday when we picked up Grandma and Grandpa from the airport. They got a tour of the house and yard. Maddy showed them how she loves to swing.

Friday we ended up with 7 1/2 inches of snow- not bad for the first official day of Spring eh? We made a snow bunny- thanks to Grandma Karen for sending the bunny ear glasses.

Saturday we went downtown and to the Children's Museum and Navy Pier It was a blast, Grandpa had lots of fun sculpting his likeness in clay.

Here is a view of Chicago from Navy Pier.

Sunday we hid a basket for Maddy and then we went to Shedd Aquarium. They have a great show with Dolphins. The aquarium was huge we spent the entire afternoon wandering around.

Monday I took the folks to Shaumburg for some shopping.

We had so much fun with them around, I can't wait for the next visit.

I am so glad your parents came out to visit, how fun! I bet Maddy loved seeing them. Looks like you guys had a great time.

We had a glorius time! Nate & Traci were perfec hosts, and Maddy was the champ. She is so polite, she blesses everyone that sneezes and thanks Mommy when she changes diapers and gets her "milk & water". Maddy talked a blue streak, putting 3 & 4 words together to make sure we understood everything she had to say. She also invited both Grandpa and Grandma into the Dora House to play! Can't wait to get back for another visit.
