As most of you know, Joshy and I looove to travel. We've taken many trips together, and since Clark came along, we haven't slowed down (despite having lots of people tell us that our traveling days would all end once we had children). One of our favorite things to do is a day trip to Chicago, where we fly to Chicago, spend the day, and come back that same night, mostly thanks to Southwest Airlines.

It was just difficult to get a picture of him when he wasn't in his stroller, because he was more interested in running to see everything....though I can't blame him.
