There were no rules this weekend.
It was an extra long one, with our Portland doppelgangers (more about them right here), Julie and Brian, coming in for a birthday (Brian’s) extravaganza. I jokingly made a (loose) itinerary – so necessary when out-of-towners have just 4 days to do as much as possible in a city with so much to do. We ate – an effing lot – took in the story of Sue the T-Rex (rawr!), beach walked and brewery toured (and this is just part 1, you guys!). Jack soaked in every last second with his adopted aunt and uncle, lounging on the couch, the bed and every other no-no in our home. Between him and the (kitty) girls, permanent smiles floated through this house, and we fell into bed each night harder than the one before.
Just like the Chicago tourist I am (and hope to always be – love this town!), the camera never left my hand. We’re only sad we forgot to snap a (Fujifilm) Polaroid, but as you may have seen, Instagrams abound. We have more digital photos to sift through, so we’ll tidy up the weekend tomorrow. But right this minute!, we need take a vacation from our staycation, and squeeze in a nap – that is, after embracing the first-day-back-to-work blues.
Happy, um, Tuesday, you all!
