Trips and Treats. . .

Well, I'm back. By all accounts, I was missed and everyone is glad I am back. But, first, let me tell you about my trip:

Last Sunday, we decided to have dinner at Del Rio's, one of our many many Mexican restaurants. It is especially popular becaue Aidan loves to sit on the donkey outside. . .

On Monday, we were up early and I was off to the airport and headed for Chicago. I had to go for three days and two nights for a Seminar that was actually pretty informative. In addition, I was able to have dinner with my sister, neice and nephew on Tuesday and lunch again with my sister on Wednesday. On Tuesday we had drinks on the 96th floor of the John Hancock Building. . .at which time I forgot to take pictures with my cell phone. But, I remembered on Wednesday at lunch!

The view was really beautiful. We were fortunate to have such a nice sunny day.

When I returned home, I called Pat on my cell from the plane and heard Aidan shriek with pleasure when he found out it was time to come pick me up! : ) I was really glad to hear that! I was missed!!!

And here is my dudely that I came home to:

His hair is soooo short!! Mama wasn't there to temper the desire to go really really short. . .

And, of course, as any parent knows, when you go away for any length of time treats are the key to your return. . .Aidan got a small stuffed dolphin and appears to like it, although he told me he really wanted an excavator. . .and a small Hummer from the Hershey store from Aunty Amy along with some Chocolate kisses from the Hershey store. I think he looks happy with it all!
