I am badly behind on everything, and likely to stay that way a little longer, because I've had spotty Internet for a week, limited to my phone, and there's currently a jet-lagged toddler who needs dinner and sleep. We got up early this morning, went through 3 time zones, and while she got a pretty good nap on the first plane, I'm not sure it made up for the rest of the lost sleep.

Long story short, we did a brief reunion in Wisconsin with the husband's family, and Guppy got to meet her grandmother and other relatives on that side. We then stayed an extra night in Chicago (watched a fabulous lightning storm and listened to a Welcome to Nightvale), and I'm having trouble stringing together coherent sentences, so have some photos and I'm taking a shower and we're all going to bed.


Chicago Children's Museum - who doesn't love a funnel?


The park on Easter.

Glad you got home safe!

Water tables are awesome but messy toys -- I daresay Ms. Guppy's glee supports my assertion. :)

There were a dozen amazing rooms in the Children's Museum, and I think the water room was her favorite. At least they provided raincoats. She was only soaked from the knees down.

If you are in Chicago or Wisconsin again, and have time for lunch or something, let me know. I'd love to get together in person some time. But I do understand how hard it is to find time on family trips to visit with friends, and also how traveling with a small one affects things, so I offer no pressure, just an invitation.

I thought of you as I was walking through public places in Chicago (and paying extra attention to any buskers I heard!), but the whole trip was very tightly scheduled indeed (and revolved a lot around getting naps before meltdowns...)! I hope to make a more leisurely trip in the future and will definitely make time to have lunch or something!

I would like that! You know how to find me online and I am perfectly willing to share my phone with you anytime you'd feel comfortable using it.
