Our good friends from Dallas, Brad and Tammy, came up for a weekend visit. The boys went to The Police concert at Wrigley Field on Friday night (and according to Randall, this is only the second concert venue Wrigley has ever hosted) and Tam and I just chilled with Mags. We did some outdoor shopping, came home and ate sandwiches, talked, and later watched "Deja Vu," which was a bit disappointing. The boys couldn't have been more pleased with the concert and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. On a very warm Saturday, Tam and I made our first trip ever to Steve and Barry's where we purchased some of Sarah Jessica Parker's new clothing line (it's only sold at these stores). "Bitten" is stylish and inexpensive; nothing (yes, nothing!) is over $20. There are shoes, t-shirts, dresses, swimsuits, jewelry, purses, shirts, and pants. You must check it out! Later, we all headed downtown and enjoyed Gino's deep-dish pizza (M&R, we totally thought of you guys), walked along Michigan Avenue down to Millennium Park, made a stop at Moonstruck Chocolate Cafe, and lastly, waited in a very hot and long line for Garrett's famous popcorn (again, M&R, totally thought of you guys). The weather was extremely warm and the crowds downtown large, so we made our escape after a few hours of exploring. That night, we played Scene-It and ate dinner (the girls won every round). On Sunday, we took them to church and later grilled steaks at the house where Shel and Randall joined us. The guys played Guitar Heroes, Randall even arriving with his guitar in it's own case!
Brad and Tam, you two have been some of our most favorite guests yet. Please come back anytime. Thanks for all the Maggie love, too. It was awesome to watch all your interactions with her. As we put her to bed tonight, she reminisced about our weekend together, smiled up at us and said, "Nose." Tam, can you believe it!? :)
