March 27-28 (I know, I'm really behind!)
Our friends from college, the Vogels, came to visit from Ohio. Ignatius ("My friend Igmatius" as Owen calls him) is 3.5 and Augustine turned one in November. On Saturday we went to the Choo-Choo Restaurant. The boys loved it!
On Sunday we went to the Museum of Science and Industry. We also met up with Mertz, another college friend. The boys had a great time. There is so much little boy stuff to see there...farm equipment, planes, and trains. Here are some highlights...
Yes, this wheelbarrow is full of just what you're thinking it's full of! It was an exhibit on alternate fuel sources...
We'd been to the zoo last summer with our friends, but Mike had never been there. It was on my list of things I'd like to do before we move away from Chicago, so e checked out the passes from the library and off we went. The weather was beautiful and it wasn't crowded at all.
They have lots of giraffes at Brookfield. Owen was hoping to see a mommy and baby giraffe (that's what he told us in the car) and I'm not sure if we did, but some were smaller and others were bigger and that was good enough for him!
Our good friends from college, The Barber's were in town. Their daughter, Keatin, is 19 months. The weather was absolutely beautiful (Ben even broke out his linen pants!)
Auntie Em and Uncle Jim met us at the zoo, too!
