One of our main reasons for detouring to Chicago was to meet our newest nephew, Max. Last year when we came to Chicago, he was on vacation with his mom so we didn’t get to see Lisa or the boys.
So this year I was thrilled to squeeze those chubby cheeks!
My brother, Rob, even took the day off of work to visit with us and wore the shirt I sent all three of my brothers a few years ago for Christmas.
Ok, I take it back….he’s more than okay!
Rob and Lisa made a great lunch for us with burgers and shrimp and salad.
We spent the rest of the time chasing the boys around the back yard.
I spent time in jail, playing super heroes with Robby.
It was a great day spent with Rob and his family. Now we have to plan another trip next year to meet baby Charlotte, who is arriving in July!
Later that day, we visited with Rob’s eldest daughter, Bryanna, at the restaurant she works at.
It was a great meal and we enjoyed the chance to chat with Bryanna. In an unexpected surprise, Bryanna’s mother, Alex, even stopped by and we got to chat with her for a bit. It was a great family day. Stay tuned for the other MAJOR reason that we went to Chicago in the next post.
