Cray 8!

My baby turned 8 while we were in Chicago. Her big day was on Memorial Day. We packed a ton of fun into one day. We had a little party for her at Poppy & Grandma's house while we watched the Hawks. Madison even wrote a new Happy Birthday song to the tune of Take Me Out To the Ball Game. It was great!

For dinner we went to Portillo's. We ate at Portillo's twice while on our trip. It has the best Italian Beef.

Syd thinks they have the best hot dogs she has ever eaten.

We also went to Cantigny to see all the flower gardens and the War Museum.

Does the picture below look familiar or the one above with Syd? Remember the movie League of Their Own?
My dear friend from High School was kind enough to make a Birthday Cake for Sydney. When we lived in chicago she would make cakes for Madi's b-day. Sydney was very excited. She had said she didn't want a plain square cake. Here we are with our little ones. She set Thomas and I up on a blind date back in the day.

The Birthday Cake. The Birthday Girl had a wonderful day!!!
