This weekend we hosted friends Angela, Anthony, Kristina, and Jason from Florida and Minnesota, respectively. Angela and Anthony managed the cold weather with extra layers and hardly made a peep when temperatures dipped into the thirties. They were total troopers and I think they could easily make a second home in Chicago.
The soon-to-be new parents Kristina and Jason celebrated a big Iowa win and introduced us to old friends Rob and Tova. We all admired Kristina's growing belly and speculated whether she will have a boy or a girl (I'm leaning towards a boy). I predict they are going to be the hippest parents around with a baby that can discuss the merits of vinyl albums versus CDs and knows how to design his or her own playroom.
It was a wonderful weekend to be out in the city taking in the sights with old friends. Showing others our new town makes me feel more a part of things and proud of our surroundings.
