Its the end of January which means what little was left of our sanity and patience has run out and we are moments away from stepping in front of a moving bus if we don't get out of the house. I think we would try to move somewhere warmer if our mortgage was not farther underwater than the titanic. This morning we took a ride on the Metra train from Naperville to Downers Grove. Yes, you can probably see Downers Grove from Naperville but who cares. It gave us something to do and the kids ended up loving it. After arriving in Downers Grove, we quickly made our way over to the Starbucks for our caffeinated treats. Matthew has developed a taste for coffee which is fairly hilarious. We have had to back him off from his favorite, the Americano (he took a few sips of my americano, which is straight expresso and water, and said "that is the most delicous ever!), to a more kid friendly decaf vanilla latte.
