Elias Frederick Mefford was born at 2:38am on June 6th weighing in at 7lbs 3 oz! He made a dramatic entrance into the world after 34 hours of labor and 2 extra weeks in the womb. We're so glad you're here Elias!!!
Every Memorial Day weekend my girl friends from Wake Forest and I get together for Girls Weekend. A few past destinations have been Knoxville, Ashville, Atlanta, Dallas, and Denver. This year everyone came to Chicago!
Carolyn, Emily L, Laura, and Andrea all arrived before dinner and we headed to Old Town Social for a great dinner. Emily R arrived later that night and we picked up Brooke and Mills on Saturday morning en route to Lake Geneva.
Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, but despite the cool temperatures we had a blast!
The cutest guest was definitely Brooke's youngest son, Mills. He was a great baby and was up for any adventures we took him on...including his first boat ride.
No Girls Weekend would be complete without the Mexican Train!
This year we added a new train game...Ticket to Ride.
Thanks to modern technology we were able to include Margaret, and her kids Anne and Henry, in a little of our fun.
We were able to get a run in during the sunshine on Sunday morning.
And a boat ride on the new Cobalt!
Mills led the way as we headed next door to Pier 290 for drinks.
Nothing beats Girls Weekend....thanks to all of you for traveling to the Midwest this year. Love you!
