Tonight is our last night in Chicago. Chicago will always have a special place in my hear, all the memories we have together as a couple and family are here. We had a great last week, I had a girls night with my closest friends. We spent time with the Kasmers on Saturday having Italian ice, taking kids to the park and playing Bachi Ball (that we won without a fight I might add). We spoke at church on sunday and of course I cried the whole time while TJ gave the best talk ever!!! How can guys hold there composure so well? Must be nice. Tonight the Burtons had us over for home maid Italian pizza and chocolate cake. It was the perfect last Chicago dinner. Our emotions are mixed when it comes to saying goodbye to our Ward and friends but we are ready to move on for our next adventure. There is something to be said about moving to a new place and just having each other to hold onto. TJ and I are the same in that we love the experience of starting in a new place, meeting new people, making new friends to add to our old ones and exploring a new part of the country. We love you all and will miss the friends we have here. Will is going to be sad about one thing, leaving Eleanor, his first Best Friend. Thank you for the memories..............God with you till we meet again.

Just before bed time tonight a lot of sharing went down in matching jammies (how cute).
Will decided he wanted to share his toyseven more toys
Will this one fit?
Satisfied with his work
Finn doesn't know what to think
Yesterday we had quite the play day, we met up with Dicy, Trey and Eleanor (clearly Will's best friend) at this cute little park by hour houses. We found a nice tree to put Trey under, I wore Finn (we are still lacking a double stroller) and the two of us chased our toddlers around the park. It was bitter sweet,this will be one of the last times Will and Eleanor play together in Chicago. He will miss his "Elno" tons!!

A couple weeks back Tom and Sandra came to visit Will, meet a new baby Finn and participate in Finn's blessing. We had a great time, Will kept grandma and grandpa busy with the zoo, aquarium and nature museum. Not to mention countless walks and the park. We loved having them here and are always sad when they have to leave. Thanks again for all your help with the kiddies and doggies. We love yall!
Fun with Grandma and Grandpa
