This family is my very best friend’s family. The kind of best friend you had before you ever even thought about having your own families. Now here we are with our own babes. Life is kind of crazy like that. Who knew we would go from singing Beastie Boys in the car with the windows rolled driving down from the beach to the movies to becoming responsible married homeowners raising little toddlers together? Life has a way of slowing you down. Anyways, we were in Chicago for a wedding and decided to document a day in the life family vacation session. There are a couple of our kiddos together that I had to sneak in because they are long distance baby bff’s and that deserves to be documented on the blog as well. It happened to be Julia’s FIRST birthday while we were there so we had to get her a cake to smash in the park. That was cut short by some rain but it didn’t spoil the rest of the time. We also checked out the skyline, the Bean, and the Lincoln Park Zoo. I loved Chicago and can’t wait to go back! I need more Chicago dogs in my life!
