Here is sweet Hailey in her new outfit for a walk about the neighborhood.  It seems her GranPaPa was most excited to take her for a “walk about” to show her off to the neighbors.  Isn’t she the cutest?

We spent the next few days enjoying the family, the Chicago weather and the Chicago cuisine.  Yes, hot dogs and stuffed pizza were enjoyed by all (in some fashion or another for Hailey).

Hailey had lots of cuddle time with GranMaMa, GranPaPa, Aunt Allison and Uncle Chris.  She also enjoyed a bite of GranMaMa’s edible bouquet.

Daddy’s favorite part of the vacation was all the time he got to spend with Hailey.  It was such a joy to watch them both enjoy each other!  Hailey really is a daddy’s girl.

On the last night of our vacation, we took Hailey to her first concert at Ravinia to see the Beach Boys.  We had a great time!  If you have never been to Ravinia, it truly is one of the best things to do in Chicago in the summer.  It is an outdoor amphitheater and several large lawn areas where people can come and picnic while they listen to the concert.  People go all out on their picnic set-ups too.  One of my favorite things to do is walk around looking at everyone’s picnic set-up.  People bring silver candlebras, flowers in crystal vases, glass wineglasses and amazing spreads of food.  Hailey had a great time dancing to the Beach Boys too!
