Splash Pad

Last week we played at the Hobson Park Splash Pad with Aisling.  It's hard to believe it is a splash pad now. David and I spent hours there every summer, when it was a pool!

The kids had a blast, as usual.  All you need is a little water on a hot day, and they're set!

Here are some pictures from one of Grandpa Cermak's softball games a few weeks ago. It was close by and  Gavin got to go and watch Grandpa coach.  Also, Auntie Clare was in town that weekend!

Our friend Katy came with her three girls.  Gavin shared his umbrella with Paige:

Time for a snack!

Clare, a Cubs fan, borrowed a White Sox T-shirt from Katy.  Isn't she cute?

Uncle David's Birthday

For Uncle David's birthday, we met up at Charlie's Restaurant at Clow Airport.  It's a cute. basic diner-type place, and it's right on the runway.  

There was one pilot getting flying lessons.  He took off and landed about four times, so that was exciting.  We also walked around a bit and looked at some of the planes.

Since we were so close to David and Brad's house, we stopped by to see this very special planting in their backyard.  Some of you have seen this on Facebook, but for the rest of you, it all started with a small stone.

David and Brad's friends gave them this, and they wanted to have it set in the ground by a tree.  Well, their landscape architect came up with a beautiful idea for this heart-shaped area of shrubs, flowers, and a tree.

It is lovely now, and we will continue to post pictures as all the plants grow up around it!
