So close to walking!

So far, the only time that Waveland has walked without a person holding her hands is when she grabbed on to Banjo's rear end, and then had no choice but to follow when Banjo started following a bug around the living room.


But now, for the first time ever, little Waveland confirms that she would much rather walk than crawl. She stood all by herself!

Neat, huh!?

A trip to Chicago!

Well, we just recently got back from a trip to Chicago and Bloomington, IL. The Bloomington Blog will soon be posted, but here're some pictures from Chicago!
Of course, our first stop was Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs! The night we went was really chilly, so we actually left after the 7th inning stretch. You can tell by our faces that Rochelle and I are really excited to be there, and Waveland is like "do they have ANY idea how cold it is out here!?"

Jeremy, Alaina and Eddie joined us for the trip, and we had a GREAT time. Eddie is in this picture...we promise.One last look back before we head to the hotel.

The next day, we decided to go to the Chicago Shedd Aquarium. It's the largest indoor aquarium in the world, with more than 8000 aquatic animals. Waveland and I got into an argument about the actual directions. It turned out she was right...Here we are with a bit of the Chicago Skyline behind us.Here's Jer, Alaina and Eddie with a lot more of the Chicago Skyline behind them!Waveland was a bit unsure of the exact thickness of the glass separating her and the marine life, but we finally convinced her that she was safe.Man! Sharks are fast!Here's Albert, the Beluga whale, poking his head up to say goodbye.

His name is actually not Albert, but he does have one. If anyone would like to find out, I'll be happy to change it.

Next, it was on to Bloomington, a 2 hour drive with 4 adults and 2 infants in a tiny rental car!

Picnic in the Park!

We've had quite a few beautiful days lately in Denver, so we decided to invite Jeremy, Alaina and Eddie to a picnic at Wash Park. Actually, there was no food, so I guess it wasn't a picnic, but we had a blanket and played in the grass, so whatever you call that, that's what we did.
Banjo is such a camera hog... Here's Alaina with Eddie. He's wearing his favorite Cubs hat!
Waveland had a great time, watching all the people walk by and enjoying the day.

Here's the Schupbach Family (well, one of them), with Banjo hogging the camera in the background again.

Daddy and Waveland had a great time playing in the grass and on the blanket. 2 Beautiful Mothers! Alaina looks like she's up to something here, doesn't she? Deep in thought... Deeper in thought...
Eddie LOVES it when Daddy chews on his toes! Mommy and Daughter Banjo. She just can't understand why some dogs get to run free and some don't. The answer is that some dogs return to their masters, and some don't. We're pretty sure that if Banjo got loose in Wash Park, she'd be missing for days while trying to make best friends with every dog and person in the neighborhood.
