    Schmitt Travels and the Baby Boom

    Tuesday, August 15, 2006

    We've finally recovered from our exciting travels which started (for Benjamin and I) two Thursdays ago. Benjamin had a great time with Grandma and Grandpa Andrews Thursday and Friday nights and I enjoyed my alone time in my hotel as well. We had dinner with Aunt Arlene at Texas Roadhouse (yum!) on Saturday and spent Sunday with the WHOLE Schmitt clan! It was great to see all of Mike's aunts, uncles, and cousins! We visited downtown Elmhurst where they have painted trains all over that the kids all really enjoyed (pictures are on flickr). We then travelled up to East Troy, Wisconsin where we stayed at Pine Ridge cottage, which was a very beautiful cabin in the woods on a private lake. We didn't do a whole lot while there except swim and eat, which allowed us to really relax. AJ and Benjamin played and played and played! I didn't take any still pictures while we were there, but we did take some video of us swimming and also the boys playing, which I hope to have on flickr soon.

    We've had quite the baby boom amongst our friends lately! Four babies in two weeks!! Our neighbors and very good friends, Katie and Jason had their son, Ethan Walter (8 lbs, 1 oz) who is SO adorable! Kristen and Jamie had their son, Gavin Presley (8 lbs, 11 oz) early Sunday morning. Stacey and Joe Brus had their daughter, Katelyn Adeline (6 lbs, 1 oz) on the 9th and Samantha and Jacob had their daugter, Nora June (5 lbs, 6 oz) yesterday afternoon. All of the babies actually came before their due dates...these lucky moms didn't have to wait a week beyond their date like we did! Haha. Congrats to everyone!!!!
