We needed a break from our normal routine to explore, reflect, and adventure together. Jason and I reflected on the car ride home that again and again when our kid are acting the craziest and seemingly fighting non stop is just when they need us and this time the most (this for me is such a HARD part of parenting because it is precisely the time I want to run away and "take a break" from the kids). When any of us stray from true connection we forget the best parts of ourselves and just how we are wired to be together with others.
Jason is always eager to share his knowledge & love of public transit.
We *almost* had Maggie Daley Park to ourselves because the rain kept most sane people away- it did mean the slides were EXTRA fast though! #livedangerously
Amazing tacos. And ummm Evy's face....
