Fiona’s First Birthday

Fiona’s Birthday Cake


She was definitely interested!


While all the cake-cutting action was going on, she was stuffing her face with cake! So cute.


Steve & Raiden


Bradley University Classmates: Killian, Kristin, Eric, Dallas, Suzi, Steve (with Fiona)


Raiden again. He’s so cute.


Eric & Suzi’s baby, Kal. He is about one and a half and all over the place. Hard to get a photo!

Fiona was born on our wedding day and right away we told Killian and Liz that we’d never forget how old she is, but we also might never be able to go to her birthday parties! Well, they pulled a switcheroo and had her birthday party on Saturday evening instead of Sunday, so we were able to attend. A bunch of Dallas’s classmates from college, Killian being one of them, were at the party and it was nice to visit with them. Also, Killian and Liz just moved into a beautiful new place and it was good to finally see it. Fiona loved her cake, which was from Dinkel’s (the best! I got Dallas a birthday cake there once).

Keeping with the birthday theme, after Fiona’s birthday party, we went out for dinner at Fork for Kristin’s birthday. By the way, we really liked that place. Delicious food and pretty reasonably priced, too.

Umeki & Len


Umeki & Her Bridesmaids


Steve & Amy


Liz & Killian


Rachelle & Dallas

Last night was Len & Umeki’s wedding at Biagio’s in Portage Park. Umeki grew up in Chicago and Len in St. Thomas. They met while attending Bradley University, where Dallas, Killian, and Steve went. Len was 1 1/2 hours late for his own wedding (!) but after he finally got there we had a great time. The ceremony was quick and sweet. Then we had cocktails and dinner and dancing. Their DJ played music that everyone loved all through dinner and after. People couldn’t even wait til dinner was over to get up and dance. I’d seen Umeki briefly at Killian & Liz’s wedding but hadn’t seen Len since Amy & Steve’s wedding last year, so it was good to see them again.

Steve and Amy got married about 3 weeks ago in Oahu, where Steve is from, and last night they had a reception in Chicago for all their friends and family in the Midwest who didn’t make it out to Hawaii. Steve is one of Dallas’ best friends from when they went to school at Bradley University. Actually we were seated at a table with all of Steve’s friends from college: Pete and Amy, both Bradley alum who are married and have 3 kids and live in Orange County; Killian, an alum who is engaged to Liz; Len and Umeka, both Bradley alum who are engaged; and then Dallas and I.
