...our Emma Grace has been the light of our lives.
Leif and I are pretty proud we kept her alive long enough  she made it to all the way toadulthood, but these 18 years flew by in the blink of an eye.

Memorial Day Fun!

 After a rainy morning the sun finally came out and we were able to host a fun Memorial Day cook-out for our friends.  We toasted Chris for nearly finishing his PhD, celebrated Rick and Rachel's anniversary with a big ole slice of Pen's famous coconut cake and the kids played jacks.  Heaping piles of ribs and chicken served alongside a bevy of salads made for a savory and easy going afternoon! Welcome Summer!

A Mother's Day Moment...

We had a very relaxed Mother's Day.  I slept in before heading out to Finn's soccer game with Leif's mom.  We cheered the Chicago Blast on as they won their game and we all headed to Autre Monde for a memorable meal later in the day.  I love that I have these two gorgeous excuses to enjoy an extravagant meal on Mother's Day, but being their mom is my honor every day of the year.
My Leifer and these two kiddos sure know how to make me feel loved!

Sunday on the Pitch

Finn was looking fierce in the center midfield this week-end as he and his team won their league game.  They played a man down and Finn played the full 90 minutes in the middle.  Amazing stuff!
