Trip to Naperville

On Sunday Asher, Taylor, Mom, Grandma Jane, Annie and I went up to Naperville to see Addie.  This was Ashers first big shopping trip and first time seeing the big city.  Mommy even drove to Naperville herself!  Except for one curb-check we got there just fine!  We got to see how the other half lives in Addie's "ritzy" neighborhood.  Did you know Oprah looked at a house just a couple of blocks from her?  Anyway we went to an outlet mall in Aurora and it turned out to be a pretty good day.  Asher was perfect even though he did get a little tired of riding in his stroller.  Don't worry there were plenty of ladies who didn't mind carrying him.
Once we got to the hotel we all had to have our pictures taken with Little Man.   Here he is with Addie, Mommy and giving kisses to Auntie Taylor.
After a day of shopping we had dinner at Hugo Frogs.  Asher was a very good boy!  Addie fed him his puffs and he would throw his toys on the ground and she would pick them up!  Mom and Addie were very disappointed they didn't have the stuff to make pomegrante martinis (the only reason we went there).

We wound the day down with Asher getting a dish of DQ ice cream to enjoy before bed.  As you can see from the smile on his face its his favorite.  We stopped in Joliet on the way home and shopped some more.  He was one tired little boy when we finally got home yesterday!

It's crazy. Asher looks so much bigger than Kane. He doesn't really look like a baby at all.

Thanks for reminding me Rachel! He's getting too big too fast. I go to get him out of his crib in the mornings and he doesn't look like a baby anymore :(
