Our kind of town

We celebrated our second anniversary early this year. Scott and I went to Chicago for one night over the Fourth of July weekend so Norah spent her first weekend at the farm with Gradma and Papa Weber. We all had a fabulous time. Grandma got Norah to start enjoying her cereal and fruit and Scott and I got to enjoy a full night's sleep after and evening out on the town. We had dinner and listened to some jazz at Andy's Jazz Club and then went to the Howl at the Moon Piano bar. We ended the night at the Billy Goat Tavern, an old haunt for Cubs fans and Chicago Tribune reporters. Pretty perfect!
The view from our hotel room at the Hyatt (which by the way is bigger than a small town).
Scott gave up a free upgrade in a deluxe room for this view. I have to admit it was pretty nice. But a deluxe room, honey, really?

Our first weekend away from baby Norah.

Bath time

Norah had so much fun taking a bath in Grandma Weber's sink that we decided to try it at home. She has a ball, splashing and eating Mommy's measuring cups.

Soul Sista

Norah's getting her groove on. Think she'll play the alto sax?

Summertime with Dad

Scott has been home with the kids this summer.
The life of a teacher. Summers off. Life is easy. Right?
Not so much, he's discovered. Two kids are a lot of work ...

Like lots of laundry.

But, they're also a lot of fun ...

Like taking time for a game of Spiderman Memory

They've even found time for some sun bathing.

40 years and counting

Scott's parents Larry and Kathy celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on June 29. 40 years! Congratulations guys. We love you!

Here's the whole fam. We didn't really even try to get all five kids looking at the camera.

Mmmmm. Good.

Norah is going through an oral phase. She likes to eat ...

Woody from "Toy Story"


Power Rangers (especially the red ones)

Everything but food.

This was bananas.

As you can see, Norah isn't such a fan of eating solids. She likes to grab at what mommy and daddy are eating, but try to get a spoonful of anything in her mouth and she's not interested.
