We went back to Illinois the last week of June to visit our families and go to my cousins' reunion up north of Chicago. We took the kids pretty much the whole length of Interstate 55-down to Alton and up to Chicago. It was a busy week with plenty of time to rest, too. The boys, including Liam were great travelers. We had a great trip! Here are some of the highlights, and the picture of the cousins will take you to all the photos I took.

Marcus turned 6 today! I can't believe how fast the time has gone. :-( He's a very fortunate 6 year old-so far he has had 3 "parties" with one more coming this weekend. The first was a surprise for him and us thrown by my Aunt Claud and Gram Cece up by Chicago. The next one was at home with Grammy Pammy on the 4th. Marcus got his new bike for a gift and has loved riding it. We had another small celebration today-cake, a few little gifts, and a trip to Chuck E Cheese for lunch. This weekend we are having a birthday party with some of his friends. I invited Marcus's entire kindergarten class along with his church friends. So far, only a handful of kids are coming-fine with me, since the weather might make us bring the party inside.
