Happy Anniversary To Us

Elk Grove, IL is just outside Chicago and it's a protected forest preserve and they have a neat park full of Elk and all around their enclosure are trees, grass, a bike path, and sidewalks. Tons of beautiful places to hang out with mother nature.

This is the best time of year to get out and do things. Warm enough to enjoy the day, and before it's TOO hot and all those mosquitos arrive.

Today was such a gorgeous day in Northern IL, 90 degree high and sunny with a slight breeze. Quite a treat for May! Today we're celebrating 9 years together and it's kind of a tricky one. There is a lot going on. I packed up turkey sandwiches, chips, apples, chocolate, and rootbeer and met hubs at this park. Baby Oliver came along for his first official picnic and showed off his brand new bottom set of front teeth. It was great. Sometimes simple things are really the best.
