the Madisons come to Chicago

This weekend, Matt and Margot were in town with their entire mini-tribe. You may know Matt from his fine line of gelato, Madisono. Or maybe you know Margot from her exclusive line of paper products like notecards, stationery, notepads, and more, Margot Madison Stationery. Or maybe you just remember them from my Cincinnati days. Or not at all.

Anyway, Matt was in town for some sort of food producers conference, so they brought the whole family--including Julia, Natalie, and Oliver--to Chicago for the weekend. It was so fun to see them, especially the kids. I hadn't seen Julia since she was not yet two (she's now seven) and I had never met Natalie and Oliver. They all came over for pizza on Friday. And then Saturday, Margot and I took all the kids to the zoo.

Finn really loved his Cincinnati pals. He and Oliver played so well together Friday night, with Finn constantly running up to us saying, "He share this with me!" when Oliver would give him one of his own toys. (That's a daycare kid for you.) And Saturday at the zoo, when Finn would get fussy and not want to follow the group, he let both Julia and Natalie take him by the hand and lead him with the group.

Let it be said that Finn loves girls. His two best friends are girls (Delilah and Ella). And when Julia and Natalie took his hand, he got all blushy and shy. Just look at him in this photo--he can't take his eyes off the girls! On the car ride home, he asked me to tell him stories about Julia and him going to the park. (An honor reserved for only his favorite friends.)
