wisc'd away!

*sorry, some of these pictures turned out extra large and a bit wonky...but my internet access is weird and spotty right now, so i can't quite fix it. please forgive me for the wacked out photos!


after some fun times in chicago, we headed off to wisconsin for a quick trip to my in-laws.

do you get the title of the post now? so clever, right?? i know, not really.

look at these cute cousins ready to roll on a mini road trip!

my mother-in-law is an amazing cook and had lunch waiting for us when we arrived.

the kiddos had an eating showdown.

pretty easy stuff when the main course is halmuhnee's famous korean fried chicken.

umma, have you tasted this goodness?! yes, sweetheart, i have. it's the stuff of champions, i tell you.

we had a visit from the hubs' little cousins who were absoultely over-the-moon about meeting their nephew for the first time.

and this little girl charmed us with her pre-bedtime smiles.

gah, i die. seriously!

the next morning, we headed over to the neighborhood playground for some early morning play.

molly was kind enough to lend choi boy a pair of her sunglasses since we left his at home. i think he's really rockin' the pink, no?

the kiddos ran around a bit...

but, mostly,

they just wanted to hang out.
i'm sorry, i couldn't help myself!

for lunch, we headed over to our favorite milwaukee joint...

YUM!!!

can you tell the mommas were excited?!

after lunch, we tried for (yet another unsuccessful) photo shoot...

i love how halmuhnee is the only one looking at the camera. :)

Photobucket
so sweet!

we tried to see if being outside would make things better,

but it turns out,
Photobucket
inside or outside, trying to take pictures of more than one toddler is not an easy feat. ;)

we said our goodbyes to halmuhnee (and realized we never got any pictures with halahbuhjee!), and loaded everything and everyone up in the car.
and thankfully, the babes promptly fell asleep.

which was perfect because when we got back to chicago, uncle jake had the pool ready for a certain pair of sweet toddlers!

  2. You went to Kopps? EVERY time we are visiting the in-laws we have to make the trip. And judging by the pics, I'd guess you were at the one in Brookfield enjoying a delicious butter burger and custard. Okay, mouth is watering now. :) Love that CB is hugging the Kopps sign. You have taught him well, Grace!

  6. Great photos! How did you decide between Kopp's chocolate peanut butter and cherry cheesecake. Both high-ranking flavors in my book, but they do not go together. Decisions, decisions...
