Door County Trip

Ahhh, one last getaway before Kasey has to return to work. We visited my grandparents up in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin for a few fun-filled and yet relaxing days. We made this same trip last August, right before Logan made his surprise arrival! It was so great bringing my son to visit a place that holds so many great memories for me. Logan and G.G.

We arrived just after 5pm on Tuesday. Logan had his dinner and then got ready for bed. We decided he better rest up for our action packed schedule! The weather on Wednesday was picture perfect, blue skies, and a comfortable 75 degrees. We went for a hike at Cave Point County Park. Logan loves watching all of the waves crashing on the rocks!

After Logan rested up from his big hike we packed him back in the car and went to Hands On art studio. There were all different types of projects we could do, mosiac tiling, pottery painting, even welding! We decided to make Logan a first birthday plate with his hand and footprint. Logan especially loved all of the 10 cats that called the studio home! While we were there he learned to wave! It is the cutest thing! He turns his hand backwards and then waves!

Later that night we met our friends, Brian, Jen, and Paul for dinner. On Thursday we headed to The Farm. This is one of my favorite places in Door County! There are a bunch of animals roaming around that you can feed, pet, and even hold! Logan loved looking but was unsure about petting! Later in the afternoon we headed back to the art studio to pick up Logan's plate. It turned out so cute!

It was such a great trip! We can't wait to do it again next year!

Carefree August

Playing in my PJs!
This is a park near Illinois Masonic Hospital. Before Logan was born we always talked about bringing our kiddo we did!

I just wanted to check in and share some pictures from this month. Logan is doing well! He is very busy these days, army crawling everywhere and saying dididadada! He has gotten his two top teeth in and we are seeing three more making there way down! We have been enjoying having Kasey at home and spending a lot of time outside. Logan especially likes visiting splash parks so he can watch all of the kids and play in the water. Next week we are headed up to Door County to visit G.G. Tony and G.G. Carole. I will definitely have more stories and pictures to share then! Besides that we are just gearing up for the big Superhero 1st birthday bash! Hope all is well!
