illinois trip - day 3 :: playing, noodles, apples, asf, monkey party

friday, september 26

friday morning was probably the most relaxed morning of our trip. i think it was the only morning we didn't use our alarms to wake up.

bumble bee winnie was helping jonah fly the hot air balloons.

oops! we forgot jonah's toothbrush. guess you get one of your birthday presents a little early, bundle.

brusha brusha brusha!

we headed over to noodles & co. for some lunch with aunt mowgy.

what a nut!

oh my goodness! have i said how much i love when jonah does this with the head on the folded arms yet? i just love it so much!

jonah: wisconsin mac & cheese

me: pasta fresca with feta

dave: pesto cavatappi no tomato with hot sauce

molly: buttered noodles with chicken

jonah: mook

dave and i picked apples in my parents backyard so grandma could make an apple pie. well, i held the bucket and took pictures; dave did the pickin'. sadly the week was so crazy with birthday parties and running around that mom didn't have time to bake it, but with two peggy birthday cakes in our bellies we still left illinois with plenty of baked goods in our systems.

friday afternoon, my mom, molly and i went to tony's asf (for all you old school rosary/marmion alum, that's "after school formation"). dave stayed home so jonah could nap. thank you, hubby! you rule!

tony's at the way back.


um, maybe i should add an arrow to this one or something. he's like smack dab in the middle.

no look shot of molly. whoops. nice aim.

so tough.

after asf, molly and i went and picked up the special guest for jonah's party on sunday.

and now to the hackbarth monkey party at rachael's house!

jonah was his usual self and loving all of the attention. here he is with our friend julie.

here are carla & swarup (soon to be married) and and the bearer of the coolest monkey mug gift: michael. i should get a picture of that thing. it rules! thanks michael!

jonah's all clean and ready to party some more (and for family pictures tomorrow). that's just ducky.

me, dave, kylee (my niece) and all of my siblings. oh and jonah being a 2 year old. hey dude, you still have like 29 hours until you're supposed to act like that.

can you tell the difference between these two pictures?

i think swarup enjoyed playing with my camera. nice shot of your fiance, man.

ian, don't fall!

check out that dimple...

julie, me & abby

sweet little baby aj. congrats bri and andrew! he's adorable! and we're so glad you could make it to the party since he showed up a little earlier than planned.
