Emily's birthday was at Little Gym in Chicago, so below are some pics of our little monkey showing off her grace and style!
Morgan had such a good time and I was really impressed with her strength! I don't even think I can hold myself on a bar (granted I am carrying around an extra 20 pounds).
The theme of the birthday party was Elmo and they even had the monster himself make an appearance! It took a couple of minutes for all of the kids to warm up to the super TALL Elmo, but I think they all really enjoyed being able to see him in person.
After an awesome evening out to dinner at Frontera Grill with Matt, Caroline, and Tommy (my sister & brother-in-law), we were wiped. Sunday started with a delicious brunch made by my parents and then a trip to see the Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown. While it was a fun idea, I am not sure it is a trip or adventure I would try again. It was a little too cold and the girls were just a little too tired to make for a truly successful trip. Plus, we had a LOT of problems with the el station. Oh well, at least we got this great picture of the girls bundled up in their warm weather gear!
