Cousin O was great about helping Henry through all the activities. Georgia grabbed some cotton candy, and wouldn't let go. I won a bag of candy corn by guessing EXACTLY how many were in the bag. It was a great party, but I have been out of the ward long enough that there were more people there I didn't know than people I knew. You can never go home again, but it is fun to visit.

Even post-call, he's a Cougar fan. The game took place Saturday, but he was able to watch it online on Sunday. It was a little bit like the pilot episode of Seinfeld, because we didn't want to know the result of the game so we had to stay away from the internet. Seinfeld only had to worry about phone calls- we had blogs, facebook, texts, and news online that could have all spoiled the surprise.
****Spoiler Alert***** We were excited to see them win.
I couldn't find Henry, I had run through the whole house and he wasn't answering me when I called his name or used our special "paging noise." On my second time through the house, just before I was going to panic, I found him in the corner of the kitchen in front of the fridge, eating a cube of butter. No wonder he didn't call out to let me know where he was.
We went to Johansen's Farm with our Ohio visitors. It was lots of fun despite constant rain. We waited for a half-hour for the train ride, but no one ever got in line behind us, so once we were on the train we went a total of four times. After this we visited IKEA, which proved to be too much. I think we all had a melt-down there.
hospital for routine blood work for me. I could not find a parking
space at the hospital to save my life, so I caved and paid for valet
parking. This is the same hospital where Georgia was born about 15
minutes after we ditched the car at the entrance- the valet stand had
closed early that day.

It was Nick's day off, perfect weather, and Columbus day. This meant that when we went to the zoo, everyone else was there too. We had a long wait just to get into the parking lot. We still had lots of fun. After, we ate a burger joint that uses grass fed beef. It was delicious. Then we had a chocolate from Fanny May's- so expensive and not really worth it. I'd rather have another of these Oreo shakes instead.
We enjoyed a beautiful outing together to the village commons. While there we saw a wedding party complete with hummer limo, a quincenira, and what I think was a birthday party. It was a happening place.

Georgia tried to eat her feet during one of her outfit changes today. We went to the zoo today but I didn't take any pictures. It was perfect weather. I wanted to mention that so in February someone can remind me that Chicago had at least one day of good weather this year.

This was Geogia's second outfit of the day, and there were three more that followed. She threw up on it as I finished buttoning it up. I'm really trying to savor the time I have with her as a baby, but a small part of me wants her to be six-months-old already so she'll stop throwing up on everything.

We had a great day. (By "we", I mean myself, Henry, and Georgia.). We did a lot of shopping (which normally makes for a bad day, but the kids were really good,) played at a playground, had pizza for lunch, bought Henry a new Thomas toy at Kohl's, and then spent the evening with his friend J. All day Henry was so excited to go to J's house, that every time we got into the car he would ask, "J's house now?". Henry was so good while we were at the store that I let him get pick out a Hot Wheels car for J and for himself. The cars were a hit.

This was taken at the first real birthday party he attended. It was for his friend E, who turned three. The theme was baby dolls. The highlight for Henry was the stroller race, which he loved and would be happy to do all day. I think he was the youngest kid there, and he was the Jimmy Johnson of stroller racing.
