End of Season

Summer is definitely coming to an end up here in Chicago; there is that familiar nip in the air that signals fall is approaching, the sun is setting earlier, pants and sleeves are making more frequent appearances in the wardrobe, and the pumpkin spice latte is now being served at Starbucks.  The other night during dinner al fresco, a flock of geese honked overhead as they started their migration south just as we were discussing how positively wonderful it has been to be home with my family, and how hard it will be to leave.  Kind of appropriate I guess. One blog follower said it best, "Fly home (north) to hatch the goslings, then head south when they're strong enough to make the trip. Sounds about right...".  That said, the weather was beautiful this weekend and we spent some quality time shoreside: a picnic on the beach with friends one day and a long, lazy sail on the next*.  Time on the water, in our opinion, is always time well spent.  I'll let the pictures do the talking.










Love,
Brittany, Scott & Isla

* And yes, you might notice Isla wore the same outfit both days.  Turns out I'm not the kind of mom that likes to doll her little girl up every day.  Waste of effort in my opinion.  If it's clean, it stays on.

Great pictures! Little Isla is getting so big, and she's adorable! I would have never noticed the same outfit. I'm like you, if it's not dirty ...

Love what your blog follower said about the travels North and South ... seems like ya'll timed everything just right! We're also excited about hearing of your new adventures!

Brittney, Scott and Isla, Great stuff! Brit you never stop surprising me. Most first time moms will change the baby’s outfit SEVERAL times a day! Normally that sort of logic doesn’t settle in until baby #3!! You’re ahead of the curve. AND I love the picture of the three of you, all in HATS! That’s the one for the top of the masthead. Oh, she is so darn adorable also. As always, if you ever need a sitter, you know how to reach me. Pack smart, drive safe and have fun on your road trip. These memories only come by once so don’t take them for granted.
Love you guy. Take care of each other. Paul & Terri

Isla looks like Dad. But fatter, more rolls, and so squishy and kissable.
