Family Shopping Day

Chris, Kinley, and I went to Peoria Saturday with Chris' Mom and Dad, and his two sisters and their families. It was quite an adventure. I voted NOT to go back to Peoria next year since I will have a nursing baby and the mall's bathroom there didn't even have a changing station let alone anywhere to nurse. Kinley and I had a little fiasco to get him changed without anywhere to lay him down. We are starting to work on potty training, but we're not ready for public bathrooms yet! Other than that the day was pretty good, although unless you're looking for clothes the mall didn't have very many neat shops. We ate supper at Chili's which I always enjoy, but Chris got a migraine and sat in the van the whole time waiting, throwing up randomly. I ended up driving home as well as there and was exhausted by the time we got home. I had a hard time staying awake listening to Chris snore and Kinley make his little sleeping noises. We did get to see the festival of lights which was neat and Kinley loved it. I tried to take pictures but they didn't turn out. I guess it was a pretty hectic day, but fun to spend it with family.

We love the Peoria Festival of Lights. Dave and I used to go down every year. A bit of a drive now though. :-)

Hope Chris is feeling better and you were able to get some rest. I hate driving when everyone else is sleeping. I tend to call people on the cell just to keep myself awake.
