Hey guys! I hope you all are having a great week, we have been busy the last couple weeks with our vacation to Chicago and Jackson's 2nd Birthday. Here are some photos from our trip, I have only ever been to Chicago when it's ridiculously cold, so it was a lot of fun to see everything. My husband's parents moved to Barrington, Illinois a suburb of Chicago, they live about an hour or so away from the city. Here are some pictures of our trip.
***Warning lots of pictures!!!***
The first day we got there we went to my husband's aunt and uncles house to grill and celebrate Jackson's birthday early. Here he is playing with Adam's cousin Megan.
*** Downtown Chicago***
Here is Grandma and Jackson on his first train ride into the city.
He loved it so much he fell asleep :)
We went to the skydeck at the Willis tower, it was so crazy to step out on to the plexi glass box extended from the building. It is 103 floors up it goes so fast!
Adam and Jackson sitting out on the ledge!
We went and saw the bean.
Then we walked through navy pier and took a boat ride back to the train to go home.
Jackson and Grandma on the boat.
***The Lincolon Park Zoo***
Jackson loved the carousel ride, he was so cute every time it would come around he couldn't figure out why they were moving and we were still in the same spot.
This gorilla enjoyed staring at all of us.
We took a boat ride on a long time friend of the family's boat. His house backs up to the river.
This was Adam's great grandparents house.
Jackson wasn't too sure about the boat ride at first.
I actually got him to smile for some pictures, his favorite word is NO ugh!
***Jackson Turns 2!***
His party was Toy Story themed so I created a banner to match.
I cannot believe it has already been two years! Crazy how time flies! Here are some pictures of Jackson when he was born.
He is finally starting to smile for pictures! I took him two weeks ago to get his pictures taken and he didn't like the lady and ran fast around the corner and ran right into the corner of the wall and smacked his forehead.. Needless to say we didn't get his pictures taken then. I am afraid to go back!
Singing to him he has no idea what is going on haha!
He got a bike for his birthday which is daddy powered for now..
And this car which he calls "ze car". We love this picture when he gets really excited he shakes his arms like crazy. So cute! My husband thinks we should send this picture in to the people that make the car to have them put his picture on the front. LOL
Lastly, as you may have noticed I have a new blog design. I would love for you to grab my new button. Thanks!! Sorry for the long post!! I hope you all enjoyed it, I will be back soon with a decorating post.
Have a great rest of the week!
