July Summer Fun

Our valiant efforts at blogging have dropped from weekly to monthly, but we hope that's still better than never! Over July 4th weekend, we hosted Uncle Mike, Aunt Molly and Paige's cousins. We took them on the El train for the first time, showed off our local parks, and hosted a great July 4th BBQ. Paige attended two birthday parties that weekend as well!

On the second July weekend, we all drove up to the north suburbs for a family picnic on Steve's side, where Paige rode on a tire swing for the first time. She had a blast playing with the "big girls" and great-aunt Sharon's house.

Then we hosted Grandma Karen & Grandpa Joe (AKA Pop-pop) for a 5-day visit, during which Paige kept them playing at the park & walking with the stroller & bike as much as possible. We had HOT weather, but a very fun visit!
