Chicago With Friends

We spent the day in Chicago this past Saturday. My friend and her hubby live in a Chicago suburb so we left at a decent time Saturday morning so we could spend the whole day together. We hit up the Brookfield Zoo first and grabbed lunch IN the zoo.

The Gang (minus the photographer Amy)...
Mike and Will...Karie, Chad, and Tenley...Me, Brian, and Mase

After the zoo we (Nyenhuis' and Helmholdts) checked into our hotel rooms and then us gals left the guys to entertain the kiddos. Amy swung by to pick up Kare and I and we headed to the mall for a bit of relaxing time away. Crazy weird when you can just sit not worrying about where or what your child is doing.

After smoothies and shopping Amy dropped Kare and I off at the hotel and an hour or so later we headed over to the Schuilings for a backyard grill out. And then we just hung out and chatted the night away. Fun times!!!

The only downside was that Mason only took a 45 minute nap all day long and he went to bed 2.5 hours later than normal so he woke up still tired and cranky on Sunday morning. We were going to hang out some more on Sunday but decided it best to just head home. Good call because the moment our car left the hotel parking lot Mase was out cold AND he stayed sleeping the entire 2.5 hour drive home.

Hopefully we'll be back to visit sooner rather than later!!!
