Over the weekend we went to Chicago... Bryan and Carter went twice in less than 12 hours! (They got up at 6am to take PapPaw and MamMaw to O'Hare. THEN after the 2 hour drive there and 2 hour drive back... we ALL took one of the summer staff girls to O'Hare.. 2 more hours over... BUT it was worth it!) We got a SUPER GREAT DEAL on Priceline for 2 nights in a Courtyard by Marriott ($40 a night!)

This was taken after I got back to the room with dinner... FAST food! These are the matching outfits MamMaw got the boys... I'll have to get a better picture next time they wear them!

After dinner we headed to the hotel pool.. dragging daddy with us, since he was so tired! (He did a good job taking pictures..even if he never got in the pool.... just the hot tub.) He wasn't the ONLY one who didn't like the pool!

My little beach-loving fish Wyatt didn't want ANYTHING to do with the pool or hot tub!

No surprise Hayden didn't want in the pool, but I made him try. He's getting braver and better. He actually held onto the side and kicked! BIG STEP! He was mainly happy to just watch from the side on Hot tub and throw the diving rings in for Mommy to get!

We didn't make it through the night with out at least one time-out!

After Carter calmed down... he did GREAT swimming in the "deep" end with no help!

We had a great time ALL BY OURSELVES in the hotel pool...then another family came in... so we headed to bed to get ready for our big day at SIX FLAGS GREAT AMERICA.

how FUN...

I love vacationing with the boys... as exhausting as it it... they really do only "remember the good parts" of each trip.

Enjoy... take lots of pictures.

Isn't it fun to just get out of town!

Our Hayden keeps asking when we can stay in the hotel. We hadf to live there last year for a week when our floors were being refinished. He obviously loved it.
