Vacation at last

First of all, standard apology- sorry for the lack of posting, life's been a little hectic with the air conditioning repair and getting ready for vacation and all. We have successfully made it to vacation however and it has been very nice so far. Yesterday was mostly a driving day but we did manage to have a little fun too. Erich, Josh, and I picked up my parents and brother early in the morning and we drove to Chicago to visit the Shedd Aquarium before settling in at our hotel just over the border in Kenosha, WI. The pictures aren't great because of the low lighting in the aquarium but the memories are awesome. Josh had a great time looking at all the fish, especially the jellyfish and beluga whales. He even got to pet a real turtle.

It was a long day but Josh did really well even though he skipped his nap. We pretty much made it through dinner at the Brat Stop (one of Erich's favorite places to eat around here) without incident but by then he was ready for bed. He definitely slept well last night and is ready to go again this morning though.

I agree with Dani. It's so much fun to see things through a child's eyes, isn't it? It keeps you young at heart. Josh is getting so big!
