Dark and Wet Chicago

Grandma #2 came into town on Thursday to meet Ezra. She took the bus up to Chicago. It was a windy and rainy evening. I snapped a few pictures before her bus came.

Thanksgiving in Iowa

This Thanksgiving we traveled out to see my mom’s side of the family in Iowa. The house we spent most of the time in has three cats and two dogs. Micah loves animals. He spent a lot of his time chasing them around. Unfortunately he does not know how to pet them. Mostly he just grabs their ears. They put up with a lot.
