My wonderful parents came out last week for a visit. It was definitely too short! But it was nice to see them, it had been way too long. Drake had so much fun with them. He was so hyped up the whole time they were here. After they left he just kept asking "where TT go?, where Papa go?". Finally he started answering his own question by saying "Utak (Utah)". We had a ton of fun while they were here. We went to the lake front, to the zoo, took a tour of the Miller Brewery, and went to Chicago. My parents were dying to go there but they quickly found out why we don't go down there very often. The traffic! So bad! Anyways, thanks for coming out mom and dad! We had a blast!

Nigh Nigh

While Drake is napping today I thought I would post some cute pics of Drake going "nigh nigh" with his bedtime friends.
He loves his bear and monkey, and often wants to take monkey everywhere with him.

When he gets tired he usually rubs the monkey's tail on his nose and cheeks, so I think he was doing that right before he fell asleep. So cute!
I had to post this picture because it is so funny! If you look closely you can see that he is laying on bear. It looks totally uncomfortable. But I guess he liked it. I often see him using bear as a pillow too which is funny because Bear isn't a super soft and squishy stuffed animal. It is a little more firm. But, he seems to like it. Weirdo!

Stud Muffin

I just love him so much! He is such a cute, silly and fun boy! And he is all mine (well, I guess I will share him with Chris)!

Impromptu Camping

This Saturday we woke up and Chris suggested that we should go camping. We quickly called around to see if any of the state parks had any campsites open. Luckily, we found one. We packed up and were in the car an hour later. It was so much fun! Other than getting eaten alive by mosquito's. Drake had a blast and kept saying "campin, hikin?" He is talking so well these days and it is so much fun to hear him attempt all the words. The only down fall is that he is such a imitator and will repeat everything you say. Anyways, enjoy the pics of our fun!

Our camp site was a short hike/nature walk to Lake Michigan. It was such a perfect day when we went and the beach was so sandy and clean!
Drake loves rocks - he seriously is obsessed. So of course he had a ton of fun finding rocks at our campsite and at the beach. When he finds them he gets so excited! He shows them to me and yells "ahhh!".
