Max in his jumpy seat

We got Max a jumpy seat while his Pop-Pop and Mom-Mom were visiting. He’s very sproing-y. 🙂 He’s also starting to walk all over in his little red car, having progressed from scooting backwards to going forwards pretty darn quickly. He’s also making progress on the crawling front…he can stick his butt up in the air now and scootle forward. Pretty soon we’re going to have to be baby proofing the house.

Lovely weather we're having, says Max

The weather has been really nice the last week or so. We even went out to the Mundelein “Barefoot Bay” water park this past weekend. Max really liked it, I think. It completely wore him out, however. He almost fell asleep mid-kick while I was holding him in the water. We’ve also spent some time out on the porch, just hanging out.

We also went to Miramar Bistro (301 Waukegan Ave, Highwood, IL 60040 • P: 847.433.1078). It’s got a great European feel with outdoor tables and white-shirted waitstaff. Great food as well and cool decor. Very city-feeling. We’ll definitely be back. We’d noticed it a while back on the way back from Ravinia one night — it had been hopping at 11 PM when we drove by. 

We happened to be in Highwood for an art festival on Saturday (small, but nice, and included an artist Guo Ji Liang that we actually have a picture from that we bought down in Florida at an art show–we’ve got one of his Southern China photos) and decided to try it out for lunch. Tony had the Croque Monsieur (awesome) and I had a specialty Italian sausage wrap (also awesome). I wasn’t in love with their fries (they have the Steak n Shake kind of skinny skinny fries that go cold as soon as you put them on a plate), but everything else was great. I think we’d have stayed all afternoon if we hadn’t had to feed Max.
