Meadow Has A Playdate

Brooke had her wisdom teeth taken out, which means it would be a boring weekend. 

I was still pretty out of it 3 days later.

Luckily Meadow had a playdate. She put on one of her favorite dresses and asked me to tie the bow. That's what dad's do I guess.

Chipmunk mama and baby chipmunk stayed back while I took Meadow over to her friend Georgia's place.

The girls were quick to start crafting. I had planned on dropping off Meadow, but ended up staying the whole time and chatting with Georgia, Celia and Ruby's dads and Georgia's mom.

The girls came over for a snack.


And then Georgia's mom was nice enough to make all the girls lunches. We'll definitely have to do this again with all the mom's too.

I came back and fed little mess maker some black beans. This kid knows how to make a mess. Brooke was still super tired from the wisdom teeth surgery, so it was solo parenting much of the day.

I wish I had had my teeth taken out before kids. 

Meadow brought home some crafts from the day.

We finished the night with some soup of some sort. Totally don't remember. This is why I shouldn't wait when writing these posts.


Actually you and Meadow went to go see The Hobbit at the Childrens Theater so I made Theo and I roasted cauliflower soup.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears.

I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Katrina and Dennis's Big Day!

I don't shoot nearly enough weddings. I'm just not good at the whole marketing aspect.The one's I end up photographing are, like this one, family or through the grapevine.
This time around I'm shooting my big (little) sister's wedding to Dennis, a man I respect immensely. I got to hang out with him a few times in Chicago and then a whole week in San Jose. I really looked forward to the bachelor party with the guys and wasn't disappointed.
While the women got ready and after I helped setup the venue I came back to hang with the dudes and ostensibly get dressed. As you can see above we drank some beer and booze and shot the shit.

My big brother, Colin, was the officiant and was really excited for his parking pass that was included with his ordination packet.
All the women involved in the wedding gathered into Katie's room to get our hair done. Olive was just there to entertain us.

And the bride is ready.
At some point we had to take taxis the mile or so up Wab…
