Happy Thanksgiving

We had 2 couples over for Thanksgiving and I didn't get any photos.....Oops. Well I guess it was one of those days where I chose to live in the moment and not worry about the camera.....

Wyatt and the Windy City

The week before Thanksgiving Matt has been going to NCTE since 2007. This was the first year I was able to go on the trip with him, and so we decided to make it a family trip. We've gone out and about to places we can walk- so some places have been out of our reach, just an excuse to come back and visit again!

Dinner at Macy's Walnut Room under The Great Christmas Tree! Such a great family memory.

A few sights walking around Michigan Avenue towards our hotel.

Millenium Park ice rink- maybe next time we can take Wyatt on the ice!

Wyatt will have to see the sites next time, he was sleeping.

We got back to the hotel and Wyatt woke up from his 2 hr nap! He decided to stretch his legs and hang out with dad.

We are truly enjoying our time in Chicago- it truly is one unique city that we hope to visit again.

Swimming and Alpacas

Another post typed in Jan 2012....

Wyatt has been taking swimming lessons and loving it. He has even handled going underwater well. By then end of his first session of 6 classes he is trying to figure out how to blow bubbles. We are excited to see what he learns at his next session in January!

My absolute favorite shot! He's such a ham!

After this particular class we had lunch and then went to a local alpaca farm that was having their annual fall open house. Wyatt had gotten himself an alpaca hat when we saw the alpacas at the Central Market in Lancaster. I found a purple hat for myself while we were here.  Wyatt got to pet the alpacas and kept signing the sign for dog! Well, I guess they do look like big dogs to a 1 year old!

All bundled up, it was a little cooler than we had expected. I was glad I had a hoodie in the trunk of the car.

Dodge City

Dodge City in Harrisburg?  Yep, it even made it on to Kitchen Impossible! We never went to it before the makeover. Our friends Lloyd and Karen saw it on TV and I caught the very end of the episode, so we decided to check it out.

We did like the food and the atmosphere was nice. It wasn't very busy on a Thursday at 7PM- we think they cater to a crowd that eats a little earlier.......we saw some of them leaving as we were walking in. I was grateful that there wasn't very many people because Wyatt is becoming a very verbal boy and at almost 13 months expecting him to sit still for a nice dinner is just not realistic. Towards the end of dinner and before dessert Wyatt and I walked around to check out the place. Then Matt took his turn letting Wyatt show him around.

This photo is when I realized I didn't have a baby on my hands anymore! He's getting so big!

Wyatt was all business on the horse as Grant was all smiles.
