4th of July

Happy 4th of July!

Yesterday we braved the crowds and brought Ben down to the Taste of Chicago. We attempted to get there right at 11 when the booths first opened but our efforts were thwarted by about 20 minutes by Metra. There were already what seemed like a billion people down there but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.

Today we went to the good old Evanston parade with Grammy and Pops. Even the rain and very loud sirens couldn't stop us from having a good time, and a nap! Then we finished off the day with dinner at Grandma and Grandpa's house, celebrating Grandma's 65th birthday. Grandpa sure can make Ben laugh!
We are so lucky to live close to both of Ben's sets of grandparents.
