happy monday! we had another great summer weekend over here!

on thursday night, kevin’s girlfriend {shanel} flew up to chicago {from virginia}. and of course we took her to get deep dish pizza {a chicago must!} we took her to adam’s favorite deep dish spot, lou malnati’s {mine is giordano’s}.

lmlm2lm3since shanel had never been to chicago before we wanted her to see some different neighborhoods. so on saturday night we took her up to lincoln square for dinner at fork. we had been to fork once before and had a really good experience so we thought it would be the perfect place to go! not to mention our favorite gelato place is right across the street {read about our last visit here}. on top of good food, there was a couple playing live music/singing in the middle of the square. it.was.perfect.

fork has a great outdoor patio and since it was so nice out the patio was packed

saturday was a fun day too. we woke up that morning and took shanel to one of our favorite brunch spots, tre kronor {you guys have seen me post about it a couple of times}. after brunch we went across the street and did some shopping in the sweden shop {my favorite store!}.

saturday night was even better! we headed over to our friends, tony +rachel’s house where we got to hang out with their sweet baby girl, lyla {read about our first visit with her here}. tony + rachel cooked us a fantastic bbq meal {adam was in heaven!} and we enjoyed some of our wine from oregon!

big brother, carter, had already gone to bed so he missed all the fun, but that just means we'll have to spoil him a little extra next time ;)
