I’ve caught the travel bug.
I know that seems a bit weird since I can barely get through a trip to Target without fussiness from a certain small family member, but I am hungry for travel. J and I are usually preparing for a trip to NYC at this time of year, enjoying a day at the US Open and spending the rest of the time roaming and being tourists.
For obvious reasons (eh hem, 2 month old), we aren’t going to NYC this year and that’s ok by me, but I’m still itching to take a trip – albeit someplace close and easy…and kid friendly. I’m not totally sure where this is, but if you have ideas for places to visit within a couple of hours of Chicago, I’m all ears (and packing our bags).
J suggested camping. I’m not entirely sure that he was joking either, but so that we’re clear, I refuse to entertain a camping trip with a two month old unless “camping” actually means nice hotel outside of Chicago with a spa. Ha.
We do have a couple of upcoming trips (and hope to pencil a few more onto the calendar quickly!)…
We are going to Mexico in December, so on Saturday we got Simon a passport. Taking his passport photo was pretty funny (J had to hold his flailing arms while I stood over him trying to get him to look up) – here are the outtakes. The many faces of Simon :).
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this kid – also, I’m biased, but he’s pretty stinking cute.
Note to self: Iron the white sheet before you use it again for a photo backdrop.
What are you planning for the upcoming long weekend?
Simon is wearing baby gap stripes (similar). He has a similar onesie in several different colors and they are my favorite!
