A Cabin in the Woods

This past weekend, we rented a cabin in Brown County, Indiana, with some of our closest friends from college and their their babies. It was relaxing and refreshing -- soaking in the hot tub, taking turns making meals, hanging out in our PJs, sipping wine and laughing into the night.

A highlight was meeting Jamie and Eric's three-month-old son, Kainoa, for the first time. He is such a sweet little boy. We knew Cassidy, Ella and Madeline were in trouble when he showed up wearing a onesie that said "Lock Up Your Daughters." We also celebrated all of the girls' first birthdays (Cassidy and Ella are almost one). Eric was a real trooper, silently suffering the whole weekend and eventually finding out that he had strep throat.

We agreed that the reunion came to an end way too soon, so in addition to meeting up for our fall Illini football games, we've decided to try to make Brown County an annual event!
