He gets distracted in the field but he can really hit the ball well. All the kids are just beginning to learn the fundamentals. Heather and Paul took us to a favorite Mexican restaurant in Carol Stream. They have a great menu and good Margaritas. We took some photos by a fountain next to the restaurant.
Needless to say I didn't get any photos of Sommer and the family but I can say it was a wonderful time. Even if we did just kick back and hang out.
Here's a photo from last Christmas when we visited Sommer and Todd and family.
Aiden and I rode the giant Ferris wheel and we had lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Lots of people to watch as we hung out at the pier.
It was a fun day and Aiden was pretty tired as we rode the train home. What a day.
We had a campfire and did some traditional S'mores and played lots and lots of games. Aiden has a little quiet time in the morning after getting up but after that it's go, go, go until bed time. Not used to that much going.
We bought Aiden a Lego car to make while he was with us. It got him to sit still for a little while.
The weekend before we left to head further west from our visits, Heather's neighborhood had a block party and we got invited. They started our with a bike parade with the kids.
Aiden and his bike were all decked out
It was a hot day so lots of folks brought tables with umbrellas and there was food. lots of food.
At the end of the day Aiden had to do some sparklers in the back yard.
That wrapped up another fantastic summer visit with our family. We did see more baseball before we left and Paul made his famous smoked ribs. We even made a stop at a couple breweries that they have been raving about. And it just so happened that Paul's nephew Thomas was staying at their house while we visited. They happy that we took Aiden for a few days so Paul could do some entertaining with his nephew. Thomas lives back in Pennsylvania and hasn't traveled too much so this was a real treat. It was great getting to know him too.
That's a pretty good synopsis of our visit with both families. I know I didn't put everything down in the post but I just can't remember everything. The time goes by so quickly. Looking forward to seeing everyone again in December when we go back to the Midwest to sit with Aiden and spend some time with Sommer and family too.
Now it's off to begin the trek west but first a little side trip to Central Illinois to see our RV friends Faye and Dave. They're workamping back at the Corp park at Lake Shelbyville. Couldn't pass up the opportunity to see them while we're in the area. Thanks for following along.
