Weekend activities

I’m really getting behind on my posts, this is from a couple of weekends ago.

My parents came up to spend some good quality time with us, but mostly with the kids. We started by meeting them Saturday morning at the Naperville Farmers Market which was actually the first time we have gone this year. In contrast, we were there almost every weekend for the last couple of years. That night, Julie and I snuck out for a date night downtown Naperville.

Sunday our good friend’s, the Giannani’s celebrated their twin girls first birthday at Pinstripes. I know it is cliche, but these kids grow up so fast.

Welcome Summer

You know it is truly summer time when the Naperville Farmers market finally opens up. We kicked off our weekly visit to the market this weekend. There is something for everyone, Mom and Emery get to buy fresh food while Carter and I enjoy the trains at the nearby station.

After the market we rushed home and then it was off to Kenny’s birthday party where Carter battled dragons and even found some dragon eggs. Kenny let us take an egg home! After closer inspection it turned out to just be a watermelon… good imagination Kenny!

Sunday funday started with a picnic in the car and then a visit to the Cavalcade of planes in Bolingbrook. We saw a lot of planes and even got really close to two old ones that took off right in front of us.

Trains, Planes, and Vegetables

It is that time of year again. The Naperville Farmers Market near the Metra Station is open and ready for business. We couldn’t wait to get back out there, Carter always gets a delicious scone and then gets to see a couple trains come through the station. It is pretty hard to top that!

That is, until you throw in some planes! This weekend was the Cavalcade of Planes at Clow International Airport in Bolingbrook. I’m not sure why this airport is called “international” because it is pretty small but what do I know? We didn’t end up going into the airport but we had a good view from the end of the runway. There was only 2 planes that took off and landed but that was enough. Carter was super excited that he got to see a hhhhhhhuuuuuuggggggeeeeeeeee plane.
