We did a "staycation" in Oswego, Illinois. We spent the whole week + at Matt's parents house. The following pictures are a quick look at some of the things we did while home. It was great relaxing, eating good food and being with family.
One of our first adventures this Air Classics Museum in Sugar Grove, Illinois. It was fun looking at the different planes and hearing Matt and his dad sound off the names of each and everyone.
Go Kartzs! Mason actually got to drive his own after this race. He loved it so much the grandparents took Kate and Mason back for another ride this past Saturday.
Matt spent time looking at family photo albums during the week. I think all of us had a good time chuckling at our fashion style over the years. Matt loved wearing miss matched tube socks- he'd be in style according to the kids I see around these days.
We celebrated Kate's third b-day by everyone wearing a Hello Kitty Tattoo.
Our 3 year old- looks like trouble to me.
A couple of boxes from the VW basement had old g.i. joe, star wars, lego and fisher price toys. The kids had a blast playing with them all week. I think Matt enjoyed it too.
Again, Morton Arboretum was beautiful. True picture of how great and relaxing nature can be.
Art was found throughout the Arboretum and I loved this one particularly.
Matt and I have been doing a "day in Chicago" since summer 1993- crazy to think in 2 years it will be our 20 year anniversary of this day. The day comprises the two us, just the two of us, taking a train into the city and over the years we have done various things throughout the day- boat ride, beach walking, shopping, eating, etc. We, these days, don't have much agenda other than walking, window shopping, eating/drinking and just enjoying our time together.
Again, great week- thanks to Matt's parents for such wonderful hospitality.
