July 8th - we drove to Chicago to celebrate Chris's grandpa's (step dad's father) 90th birthday!  It was a long 10 hours in Chris's truck and it rained the entire way.   We got the phone call to find out the sex of the baby though while we were driving!   

The girls loved seeing the St. Louis Arch!

We checked into Staybridge Suites in Merrillville, IN and then grabbed some dinner before going to grandpa's house in East Chicago.

Baba was already there, and she met us at our car!  We hadn't even made it across the street before Hollyn told her "Mommy is having a baby boy!"   Grandpa had to have a congratulatory shot with Chris, of course!
Papa Nick & Meghan's flight didn't get in until later that night.  We went back to our hotel to sleep for the night, then met them at Grandpa's the next morning, so we could take the train to Chicago!

We saw the bean first and took some pictures....

Then went and bought me some sunglasses, since I left mine back at our truck...

Aunt Meghan bought the girls their first American Girl Dolls!
