Springfield, IL

To celebrate the end of the semester (and the end of the first two years of med school/the book work) we headed down to Springfield, IL to visit the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. It was totally awesome!

Us with the Lincoln's in front of the White House
Kate loved this doll house they had in the children's play area. She loved playing with the Lincoln family and all the furniture
She makes a pretty cute Mr. Lincoln
Lincoln's tomb. It is very impressive.
Checking out the sea otter at the Miller Park Zoo with Daddy
Kate loved the monkeys best!
Seating forward now...she's a big girl and loves it!
Oh and we had Kate's 2 year well-child check up before we headed out of down. Here are her stats:
                                                          Weight: 24 lbs 7 oz (21%itle)
Height: 32.6 inches (20%itle)


  1. WOW! Looks like such a fun place - how cool! Kudos to you guys for keeping Kate backward facing for the full two years - you are such great parents!!

  2. Ha. How fun. We never made it down to Springfield. We wanted to, but never got there.
