We arrived in Wilmette yesterday around 4:00, got settled in at Cam and Linnea's and then headed over to Wednesday night at Winnetka Covenant. It was great to see so many friends and honestly felt very normal being there...almost like we hadn't ever left! Our time in the Chicago area was split up staying at the Johnsons, my parents and the Stroms, we loved every minute of our time and got some good quality time with friends and family.
On Thursday morning I took the boys to the Shedd for one last time before our pass ran out (Gwen had school so they stayed home and Erik went to a coffee shop to do a little work). The boys enjoyed watching the Christmas Fantasea and I was surprised at how easy it was to have all three boys there. Such good troopers.
After the Shedd we met Erik, Linnea and her girls at the Zoo! Talk about a full touristy day! While we waited for them we went into the Conservatory which was all set up for Christmas with trains and poinsettias...so beautiful. The boys enjoyed walking around with the camera to take pictures, so here are their photos...
The hippo was right by the glass today.
Winding down with some veggie tales after a fun filled day...love these kids!
