I took an hour this morning to accompany Hazel and her class to Green City Market. We bought strawberries to snack on and a cucumber for their afternoon cooking lesson. We ran into my mama, who snapped this pic. And then Hasel held my hand on our walk back to school. It was a great way to start the day. (๐Ÿ“ท: @leslieafricano )

Uncle Dan & his girls

Seeing my sister become a mama has been one of the greatest joys of my life! ๐Ÿ’•(Also, take me back to yesterday!!)

It was a grass between your toes sort of day. A blue sky, picnic lunch, scraped knee, run, laugh and play... great way to spend a holiday, sort of day. ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒโ˜€๏ธ

Today was one of the most beautiful Chicago days I have ever seen. I love this city.

Bus ride to breakfast #citykid

Happy Memorial Day ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ (Also, when did Hazel grow up?!)

Great weekend! Roadtripped to southern Illinois for quality time with the extended fam. Loved seeing great grandma S and the whole crew.

Wizards + Watermelon

About 5 minutes after this pic was snapped the wheels came of train! Felix threw-up an entire plate of spaghetti & meatballs down the front of Simon (gross!). Shortly after, I needed the Uber driver to pull over cause it was my turn to get sick. And Hazel spent the better part of the trip sleeping on the bathroom floor. Granted, it was a terribly inopportune time for the family flu, but we didn't let a little sickness ruin our fun. We moved a bit slower than expected but still managed to rally and make many cherished memories! #bootandrally (PS. Huge thank you to the housekeeping staff for all the extra sheets and for giving piglet an emergency bath in the middle of the night.)

Hermione & Ginny | And a story: the girls heard from our neighbor boy that at Harry Potter world, one person is picked for the wand ceremony (you know, "the wand chooses the wizard"). Leading up to our trip they became obsessed with the idea of being the one selected. Obsessed. So when we arrived, our first stop was Olivander's, and the demonstration was brilliant...But alas, neither of them were chosen. As we made our way out of the shop at the end, the wandmaker tapped the girls and held us back. Then, after everyone had left, he closed the doors and gave Hazel and Felix a private wand presentation ceremony. The music! The lights! We were awestruck. Hazel was presented with a Hazelwood wand and Felix got the "tiny but mighty" Ivy. He told the girls their wands shared a unicorn hair core, from the same unicorn, one that would forever bind them. He then went on to cast a spell of strength, curiosity and charisma that would guide them through life. I know, I know...It's just a theme park, but I couldn't stop the tears from welling. Harry Potter has been nothing short of magical for these two. For all of us, really. โšก๏ธ๐Ÿ‘“๐Ÿ”ฎ
