we hit woodfield today for shopping and then lou's for lunch. great chicago favorites. this was our "down" day even if we didn't get much resting done. we had so much fun being together without any official parties, though the whole day was a celebration. i was really starting to miss my boys, we facetimed & texted pictures and videos back and forth a lot - that helped me get through it. i told my dad at one point during the weekend that the only person i'd leave mikey for a few days was for him. and i'm so glad i was there for the celebrations!
