"Chi-city"

My, oh my!

I bet y'all thought we'd dropped off the face of the earth...
well, just about!

Company visiting and busy schedules do that to us these days,
and it takes us a little longer to recuperate.

So....
the MacKinlays came to Chicago last week!


Which is the most activity we've seen around here in a long time,
thanks to busy girl Maddy. :)

We fared pretty well...
all of us exhausted by the end of the stay,
but it was well worth it!

Two little Rogers-side cousins got to meet for the very first time.
There were lots of hug-giving, learning how to be "soft",
and smiles we had never seen before on Connor's face
- he was so in love with his big cousin!


Aunt Kristen & Uncle Dan got to kanoodle with Connor.

Brian & Dan caught a Cubs game,
while the girls & the babies had an excursion to the outlets.

We made a trip to the local zoo.
It was just the perfect size for babies and toddlers!

The Fourth of July was a rainy one,
so we stayed in and ordered some Lou Malnati's. YUM!

We headed downtown the next day.


We took advantage of a BofA promotion,
and got to see parts of the Shedd Aquarium for free.
The limited admission was no big deal,
as it was only about as much as a 15-month- & 6-month-old could handle!

Afterwards we headed to Grant Park for the Taste of Chicago... YUM again!

Nearly as big as the turtle! - July 5, 2009

Notice the outfit change??
Yep, we're still at the aquarium!
Connor just likes to keep his look "fresh",
too bad Daddy couldn't! - July 5, 2009

I thought for sure I had more photos than these on my camera...
they all must be on yours, Kris
(ahem.. where's your post already?!?)

UPDATE: More pics posted here.

So, in conclusion, having the MacKinlays here
was a whirlwind of fun... fun... fun!
Please come again!

Stay tuned for a muy grande post
on Connor's upcoming 7-month birthday,
later this week...
it's gonna be a picturepalooza!

What cute pictures! Both Connor and Kristin's little girl are beautiful. I bet you are loving being able to get out of the house with him now and doing "normal" things once again. Can't wait to meet the little guy!
