The night before we went, I told Clayton we were going to Kate's. He got his suitcase and his Dad's car keys. Apparently he had plans to stay for awhile and drive himself. :)
Cool Clayton on his way to Kate's!

Speaking of Aunt Anna, Clayton and Maddie wanted to make sure she knows how proud they are of her and her new job! Aunt Anna is one of the new counselors at Champaign Centennial High School! We know you will do great. We love you Aunt Anna!
Madeline loved all the cuddle time. Clayton was super excited that Mimi and Papa helped expand his Thomas the Train set. Mimi even used a box from Striderite to build a tunnel for his cho cho! I love that Uncle David gets the kids books! He had to sit down and write in about 7 of them though, silly mommy always wants the kids to know who got them the books. Oh and we can't forget the water bottle Aunt Anna got him. He is obsessed with that! :) My children are spoiled!!
We love you guys and can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks in Galena!!! P.S. Weekends like that reinforce the need for my July New Years Resolution!!!!!!

Maddie Boo is now her official nickname. That is all Clayton calls her. I am sure she will have to go to therapy for this some day, but it is really cute especially when Clayton says it. Here are some various pictures from July. We love you baby girl!
I wanted to take a pic of the 2 of them to put in it. Not so easy when trying this alone. :) I told Clayton he had to hold Maddie's head up. He took that literally as you can see by the first pic. The second pic was the winner. Not perfect, but daddy loved it!

We then headed to Pawnee to stay with Grandma and Grandpa B for the rest of the weekend. I don't have any pictures, but Clayton went to the zoo with Grandma, Aunt Heather and Aunt Shannon. I was told I couldn't post the picture, but Clayton conned Grandma into going down the slide! Justin and I were able to spend the evening at some friends house on Saturday night. Maddie tagged along with us. Then on Sunday we had a dinner with the Great Grandparents.
It was a super nice weekend! P.S. I am posting like crazy so scroll down for more! :)
A couple of weeks ago Justin mentioned that there were some old cho cho trains in downtown St. Charles by the river. Clayton has become somewhat obsessed with trains so we knew he would love this. We decided to go down one evening to check it out. Clayton definitely loved seeing the train and even got to see some barges on the river.

Small rocks=Clayton needs to play on the ground!
