On Saturday we headed to Madison, where we LOVE to spend a lot of our time, and enjoyed the farmers market, childrens museum, lunch at Bluephies, and a Trader Joe's run. It was a blast from start to finish.The famer's market had a neat art exhibit all over the square and I could have spent hours looking at all of the artwork. The boys love the market and were entertained for almost an hour and then we knew we needed to switch gears and head over to the children's museum. We went about two years ago and walked out right away..not impressed at all. But last year they did a huge overhaul and it's amazing! We spent almost three hours there experiencing each floor and laughing a lot. It was so much fun watching the boys take it all in.
After the children's museum we went to Bluephies, which many of my friends rave about. We had never been before but it's been on my bucket list for a while. It did not disappoint. It was actually a profound lunch for our little family. Over lunch the boys started talking about the baby names we have picked out. If its a boy we are leaning towards Brody Mason. Mason we are set on but Brody we are going back and forth on. Kylan asked why we picked the name Mason and we had a great talk with them about their little brother being in heaven with Jesus and answered many of the questions they had. They boys were 3 and 4 when Mason died and while they came up to the hospital they didn't go to his funeral and don't remember the conversations we had with them then or shortly thereafter. While Chad and I talk about Mason often we 've waited for the right time to talk to them about Mason. And this Sat over lunch it was a bittersweet conversation. I just love my little men and their hearts.This week is going well so far...i'm heading to the city tomorrow and staying with my sister who will be there on business as well. We have been able to have dinner together the past few Wednesday and i've crashed at her hotel which has made my Chicago commute so much more desireable! I can't believe a week from tomorrow I am off for two weeks and three days. I'm beyond excited for the time away. Before I close I want to share some fun pics from out time at the museum.
