Ed, myself, our kids and my mom and brother, Chad caravanned to Chicago for a few days to visit my older brother, Bryan.
Stopping for dinner and a quick game of baseball off the highway!
Oliver and Eden cuddling at the hotel. They sleep together every night... I know they comfort one another quite a bit.
Playing in the pool together. I was surprised that he took off his hat, but proud of him that it didn't matter.
While waiting for the train into Chicago, we had about 20 minutes to kill so we found a park nearby to play some ball... of course...
Even though his left side was weak, he could still make contact with the ball!
Uncle Chad, Ollie & Uncle Bryan
Jaren waiting for the train with Uncle Bryan. He really likes 'Thomas' so it was fun for him to see a real train!
Oliver being goofy. He was in the wheelchair a lot this trip since there was a ton of walking.
Jaren just chased birds the whole time!
Still a bit too chilly for the fountains to be on...
Eating a real Chicago pizza!
Jaren loved the Thomas train ride!
Always with his hand in his pants...
The kids were feeding the seagulls some chips.

Jaren and Sissy
It looked so pretty with all of the candles going. You sat in a specific colored section which matched the knight that you cheered for. Ours was the red knight.

The Red Knight... who happened to win that night... I'm just sayin'...
Eden is eyeing the man who had just said he saw the knight she's standing next to move!!!
Ollie and Bear sword fighting on the way out!
It was such a fun night! I wished Ollie could have met some of the knights. I think they had a ball!
