ballerinas, bicycles, and the 'burbs.


i was fortunate to spend a couple days with my sister-in-law and her family while in chicago. her girls are just the cutest and have grown way too much since i've last seen them, so it was great spending quality time together. it was also great spending some quality time in the 'burbs! let me tell ya—it's been way too long since that happened! 

jacquie kept asking if i wanted to go into the city and explore, but i insisted that i was content and happy just hanging around the house. and as a matter of fact, i preferred it! it's such a nice break from the norm. so instead we filled our days bike riding around the neighborhood, picking up kiddos from school and gymnastics, braiding hair, playing dress up, and baking yummy banana bread and oatmeal cookies. 

i sure love my life in the city, but man, that was a dream!


  1. Man, that looks so fun! I wish we were all close so we could do those things together!

  2. Looks like so much fun! Oh how I do miss the burbs sometimes! Can't wait to see you when you get home from all your travels!
