We made a quick trip to Illinois last week to visit Blake's family. It had been far too long because of this whole dissertation thing. :) The trip and time with his family was much needed. We had dinner with both of his grandparents, Lauren(Blake's sis) came home for the weekend, and Blake and his dad got to go to a St. Louis Cardinals playy off game.
Our last night there was beautiful so they pulled out the fire pit/grill and we roasted hot dogs and marshmellows! The kids loved it!
