Pumpkin Day!

Today, Jason decided we needed to carve pumpkins! It was the perfect fall day today... Brisk, overcast, breezy, and a hint of rain. In fact, I think our quote of the day was "It's beautiful, it's ugly, it's Fall!" It was a great day to enjoy hot chocolate, carve pumpkins, and roast pumpkin seeds. Even Lady and Ozzie liked the taste of pumpkin! Mine is a palm tree and sunburst (very Autumn-esque, I know), and Jason's is... none other than... a Cardinal.

Mom & Dad Davis visit Chicago!

Jason's parents came to visit this weekend! We had a great time showing them around Chicago. We went to the Lake Michigan lakefront, Wrigley Field (booo Cubs! Go Cards!!), the John Hancock Tower, and Michigan Avenue. We even had an early birthday lunch for me downtown. It was so good to have them here. They got to be at church for Jason's first baby dedication today! We were so excited for them to meet the people at our wonderful church who have been such a huge support to us. It was a great weekend, and we were sad to say goodbye.

Early Fall Fun

We have enjoyed getting to know the city a little! Here are some pictures from recent visits to the Museum of Science & Industry and the Lincoln Park Zoo, a free zoo downtown. The zoo was great- the lions were roaring, and the polar bears were playing with us, swimming laps and coming right up to the glass. I even got a high five! We also had a great visit from Dad and Mama C! Their "grandoggies" miss them terribly!

Fall is settling in here, and we are.... well, Jason, is loving it. Betsy is trying to stay warm. The leaves are turning and the nights are cool, and perfect for walks. We plan to have a great fall!
