Trip home to Chicago

Well, as most of you know my dad has been in and out of the hospital since his third heart attack over the holidays.  Sean and I have been wanting to get back to Chicago to visit him and the rest of my family since we were there on New Year's weekend.  The weekend after Sean's birthday seemed like the perfect time to go visit since my youngest brother was playing in his sectional tournament.  Daniel is a senior who is 6, 7'' and is an amazing basketball player, and I haven't been to a home game since I graduated high school, so it was good to see him play one last time in our gym.  The best part of it all was his team won!  Dan did a great job and played a really great game.  We're so proud of him!

I think this pic looks sweet!  Dan was waiting to sub in. 
At our high school when they win sectionals the team gets to cut down the net.  Sean thought it was a weird tradition, but I think it's kinda cool.  :)

Dan and Chris after the big win!

Happy Birthday Sean!

Sean turned 25 on March 4th!  All he kept saying throughout the day was that he was a quarter of a century old, and how he was getting so old.  It seems crazy to think that this is his 3rd birthday we're celebrating as a couple.  I hope it was a fun day for Sean, I had to work but we still got to be together a little.  I woke up and made him breakfast in bed (even though he always wakes up before I can get in there).  We had a true southern meal; bacon, grits, and fried eggs.  Our friends Cori and Mark have been staying with us for the last few days, so it was fun to have them there too.  I luckily had a long lunch, so I came home and we had lunch together.  After I got home from work he opened his presents, then we went bowling with Gerret and Sarah, Kylie and Mike, and Cori and Mark.  He doesn't have school on Thursdays so hopefully that made the day even better.  He got a lot of calls from his family and friends, and I know that made him really happy.

I got Sean a black on black New York Yankees hat (he's been a closet Yankees' fan for years) and some new Pumas.
