Labor Day at the Morton Arboretum

We got a preview of fall weather on this Labor Day 2011....  The high temperature of 67 was a bit misleading, because the wind made it feel much closer to 60 (or colder!).  After The Great Sosini woke up from her nap, we packed up a picnic dinner (for just me & Sonia-- we accidentally forgot Andrew's portion of it in the refrigerator-- whoops!) and headed out to Meadow Lake and the Conifer Walk at the Morton Arboretum.  We were checking out the Nature Unframed art exhibit, which includes incredible art installations inspired by and displayed within the gorgeous arboretum landscape.  Clad in fleece jackets (were we wearing shorts just two days ago?!?), we had a fabulous time enjoying the weather, art, and just being outdoors in a beautiful setting.

Run run run.... It's fun fun fun....

Jumping like a froggy was Sonia's favorite pastime today! 

Showing off her beautiful blue eyes....

Speaking of beautiful, Sonia has a message for you.  Yes, YOU!

These letters were huge!!

Sonia, you are too much.
