Summer Time

Summers in Chicago are so much fun. They can be jammed packed full of fun activities or they can be very relaxing. This summer we have tried to "hit" a new local fest every other weekend. It's so much fun, from Greek fest to Piergoi fest to local county fairs. Claire enjoys the rides and I love the family/friend time, plus we get to try new (and amazing) foods!
We try to take a family walk every night (as long as the humidity isn't too high) and we try to get to a park every couple of days as a family also. Thank goodness for my parents pool, that sucker has been a life saver this hot summer. We are over there a lot! No matter how warm or cold the water is, Claire can swim forever! She's my little fish! 
Yes, this summer as been very hot a hot we haven't felt in a few years but I'm enjoying it! Claire will only be two once and I'm truly enjoying every moment of it (for the most part- minus the lovely tantrums!)
Here are some pictures from our summer:

My little monkey!

Swing time!

Best Buds!

Claire loves being outside!

Daddy and Bug at Starved Rock.

We love a good family hike!

And pool time, no summer would be complete without pool time!

Hope you all are having an amazing summer too!!
