Holy cow, what happened to the month of May? I can't believe kids are finishing up their school year, Memorial Day is right around the corner and June starts next week.
I've been out of town for more than half the month. Our May travels started with a trip to Chicago for work. I had to be there for eight days and Aaron can't get to daycare before they close. So Nate came along! And as a last minute surprise, my friend Dawn (inspiration for Nate's picture a day) was also in town. Which is remarkable if you know that Dawn lives in San Francisco. It's been almost two years since we got to catch up in person although it felt like no time had passed. And thankfully Dawn's the mother of a little boy so she didn't think anything of Nate figuring out how to wiggle out of his highchair and climb up on the dinner table.
Thank goodness for Dara who generously offered her time and watched Nate during the day while I was in meetings. Nate seemed to love his time with his Aunt Dara and (dog) cousin Jackson. Whenever Nate napped, Jackson was right there next to him.
Aaron joined us in Chicago for the weekend and took Nate home with him. They had a nice boys weekend including Nate's first trip to a MLB game. Aaron and I love Chicago and were so happy to share one of our favorite cities with Nate.
