We're back!

 Some couples plan relaxing, tropical vacations for a "Babymoon".

Cody and I?
We just seem to be hitting up every cool conference we can find!

This last week we were in Chicago for this amazing conference.

 The music was led by Keith and Kristyn Getty--more cool Irish people.
Sandra McCracken, Sojourn, and Kevin Twitt were also there!
  
We also got to hear awesome preaching from D A Carson, Matt Chandler, Tim Keller, James MacDonald and other oober smart guys!

Other fun highlights from the week included...
amazing buildings, riding in taxis, trying out new restaurants, speed shopping with my good friend Liz, and lots and lots of laughing!

 This is my favorite picture from the trip.
Although the thought and smell of coffee still makes me completely nauseous (thank you, baby #4),
this little barista was so fun to watch.  
Everyone else raved at the coffee from Intelligentsia.  If you get to Chicago, check it out!
So there you go...
...we're back home and ready to hit the road running with preparations for Easter and a special little girl's 8th birthday party!

So glad you had a great time. Give Cloe a giant birthday hug for me. Can't believe she's 8. Although Titus informed me the other day that he wants to be a big boy right now so he can go to school right now, not later, so I guess I can believe anything. Kids these days. All this growing up so fast is a bit much some days. :) --Jess
