Karina's friend from church was kind to let us borrow some baby items, a Pack N Play and playmat.
Eleanor loved playing on the floor with her aunts and toys!
Thursday went by way too fast. Soon it was Friday already and we were ready to get out of the house for a bit and take in some fresh Chicago air.
In case you weren't aware, it is cold up north! We bundled Eleanor up in her bear suit. She was almost too cute to look at.
Alex, Eleanor and I walked around Geneva, a cute little touristy town. We soaked up a little sunshine, got a little exercise and did a little shopping. We found an adorable consignment shop and bought Eleanor a set of wooden blocks for just $4!
Saturday we had fun plans with Chrissy and Karina and their families. Eleanor's cousins (our niece and nephew) are about to turn 17 so we celebrated with a birthday party complete with a chocolate cake from Portillos.
Cousins having fun with baby Eleanor. (Emily couldn't be there, so we brought her in via iPhone!)
After twelve or so years, there is finally another cousin, and the CuzFuzz couldn't be more thrilled!
Eleanor took to Jessi right away. I think it was the blonde hair, but she was just all smiles!

Saturday wrapped up in a very wholesome way, with church and then a round of cards. We learned a new game called Three Thirteen.
Last was an episode of Downton Abbey (season 1) and a snooze on the couch for some!
By Saturday we were already exhausted! Although our weekend was full of relaxing days around the house, we had too many late nights and too many early mornings. We had to squeeze in all the family time we could get. I'll be back soon to recap our Sunday and Monday!
