Another day at the beach!

This time it wasn't at the ocean, though, it was at the "Great Lake"! (one of them, anyway). We met up with Kendra, one of my best friends since 4th grade - we won't talk about how many years we have actually known each other - and our families had so much fun hanging out, going out to eat, and out for ice cream. She has 5 kids (her oldest stayed home, but she had her niece with her), and my 3 were with us, so we got quite a few looks with all of our kids walking around! Our daughters Alyssa and Cassie have become the best of friends, they are only 2 months apart in age. It is so fun seeing them form this special bond, just like their moms! Alyssa went home with them for the week, so once again, my Alyssa is gone for another week. I miss her!
Addie and Lily, playing football like their dads!

Our kids!!
This was the only way we could get a picture of Riley and Bailee together....we let them make bunny ears! (their moms have plans for these 2 someday....shhhh!)
Our families!

It looks like you are having one amazing summer. The kids looks so happy. Where in Chicago do you live. My cousin made the University of Chicago and I know I am going to visit her often. I have another friend that lives in Kenosha. Maybe we can meet on one of my trips.

Other than Addie, your kids could all be brothers and sisters! All that blond hair and blue eyes!
