Not only was there a monumental parade and rally featuring a reported 2 million sweaty humans celebrating our hockey team’s championship in Chicago, SulliParents were able to find a couple hours for a date today. (Thanks to Molly’s mom for watching the little guy.)
It was strange not having Liam with us, but we enjoyed our time at Wrigley to watch the Sox beat up on the Cubs. (Thanks to Molly’s Uncle Dave for the hook-up) Well, I enjoyed the result, SulliMom enjoyed the company. Future family member Ted and pal Cory accompanied us, while we broke the commandment, Thou Shall Not Leave A Sporting Event Early to pick-up Liam. But we did walk by new owner Tom Ricketts. Molly’s response, “He’s skinny!” Agreed.
Tomorrow, Liam will be baptized into the Catholic Church, which is very exciting. Like weddings, these are events I’ve attended my entire life but you never really experience until it happens to you. It should be great. Notre Dame de Chicago will be rocking. Liam will be wearing a dress. Some traditions you can’t overcome.
To cap off the weekend I get to accompany 1,500 women at the Naperville stop of the US Women’s Triathlon Series to perform announcing duties Sunday morning. It’s a tough job to send off that many women in bathing suits into the water, but someone has to do it.
