On Sunday we all headed to the Remix Fest on Milwaukee Avenue between California and Fullerton. Jess, Andy, Katie, and Scotty met us over there. It was a small fest, but the proceeds benefit a local school, so we did our part.

Jess was meeting some friends at the Longman & Eagle Block Party so I joined her. They basically had the block blocked off and you could drink and eat a limited menu outside. Perfect night for it, but for the record, I did not like that Grey Lady beer.

After a while we headed to Emporium and had some more drinks and saw some more friends. Fun night.

Last year we had so much fun in Wisconsin barbecuing and catching up with family, that we did it again this year. Last year, I was 7 months pregnant and it was fun this year to finally introduce everyone to Makai. He had so much fun playing and visiting with all his cousins and aunties and uncles that he missed his afternoon naps and stayed up right till his bed time at 8 p.m. Makai was especially loving Kiara, who is one month older than him; chilling out by Dustin; and playing with Tessa, Charlotte and Margo.

I had fun seeing everyone too and it was nice to be at my parent’s house in the country, which is not really the country, but is the country compared to where we live!

Also, I had never seen this version of 312 before, even though Goose Island beer is made in Chicago and is everywhere here:

Enjoying Our First Parents Night Out

One Friday per month our daycare center gives you the option to leave your child there until 9:30 p.m. for $20. So that’s three extra hours at less than $7/hour. What a bargain! Dallas and I ended up going to Revolution Brewing with Adam. And then we headed over to the Whistler for a few fancy cocktails. Next was Analogue, where Andy, Jess, Chris, Mike and Todd met up with us. Analogue opened in December and I’d never been. I liked it. We only had drinks, so I can’t judge the food, but the drinks were super tasty. Makes sense, since two of the founders of this place are Violet Hour vets.

I felt a little bad that Makai was at daycare for 12 hours that night, but he was with one of his class teachers, so at least he had a familiar person to be with at night. And I’m sure he had fun with the kids… we sure had fun with our friends!
