Out on the Town

Mike had the week off for paternity leave, so we decided to spend Friday morning enjoying the nice weather in downtown Naperville. We loaded up Ben and Dee and headed off. We picked up some bagels and coffees at Einstein Bagels, and then walked over to the riverwalk to eat.

Ben was enjoying all the new sites and sounds of the riverwalk.

But all those new sites and sounds helped him to work up an appetite. Little "chub chubs," as we like to call him, sucked down 7 oz before he was content and ready to head out.

Dee waited as patiently as she could for us to finish eating so she could hit the road.

Once we got moving, Ben fell asleep. But every time we would go over a bridge, he would pop his eyes open and stare, looking a little freaked out for some reason.

Dee loved her walk and marked her territory wherever she got the chance, peeing like a boy dog.

Content that her spot was marked, we moved on.

After a nice walk, we packed up and headed home. Dee helped to navigate for a while.

Exhuasted and happy from her walk, she decided to rest it up a bit as we made our way home. A good time was had by all.


  1. Ben's hair is awesome, and that little hoodie is adorable! Riverwalk looks like a nice spot! I was quite amused by how you documented Dee's pee spot. Very thorough photojournalism.

  2. He does have some crazy hair! I do try to be thorough. :-) I was noticing in these pics of Ben that he is not very photogenic. Much cuter in person, if I do say so myself. This is yet another trait he gets from his dad.
