We made the very quick flight to Chicago last weekend to visit the Keaty Family. I was pleasantly surprised with how Matilda did on the flight (although gun shy about a longer flight than that now). My strategy was to get her to the gate to woo everyone with her cuteness BEFORE we boarded so that if she freaked out on the flight they wouldn't be so angry.

Not sure if it worked, but Matilda like looking out the window at the plane.

We got to go swimming, to the zoo, to a fancy new 'city' playground, out for very delicious pizza and just spend lots of good time with the boys.

I have some semi-cute photos from my phone that I cannot get to upload, and I've been trying for 2 days with no results, and the stress of not posting has gotten to me. So alas, no photos.

But just picture Matilda and Leo pressed up against a giant APE (not a monkey as we were schooled by Nick) with only a pane of glass separating them. All of the boys acting like Monkeys outside of the zoo. Leo looking deliriously happy as he gets his pizza. And Matilda in the airport staring longingly at the plane.

It was a very fun weekend, and Matilda picked up on lots of tricks. She was much more excited to stand by herself after spending time with the boys. Perhaps when she sees them next they can get her to walk!!

**Edited by Nate** - As I sit here waiting for my quesadilla to crisp to golden brown, I thought it might be nice to upload the pics for my amahzing wife.  I second Greta's comments, great weekend with the Boys and Bec!
