Eater Weekend

We had a very nice, although somewhat hectic, Easter weekend. Usually I am able to see my family at least once a month, but the stretch was longer this time, so I was very excited to go home for a visit.

We didn't leave for Chicago until Saturday, so we took advantage of the beautiful weather and went to the beach on Friday night. Emerson hadn't been since summer and we wanted to get her used to the sand again. She had a great time and didn't want to leave!

This isn't the greatest shot, but it shows Emerson playing on Grandma's porch. The rainy weather cleared by early afternoon and the sun peaked through. Em was able to play "outside" without really having to go outside--really nice!

We partied on Saturday this year, as apposed to Sunday, because we were celebrating Easter as well as my Grandpa's 85th birthday. Although the party was for my Pa, Emerson stole the show. Here she is entertaining with a rousing rendition of "The Itsy Bitsy Spider"---for the hundredth time. :)
