Family, Friends and Fireworks

A Chicago tradition, our dear friends annually host a Fourth of July BBQ on their gorgeous rooftop deck. There we eat grilled meats, drink, listen to good music and hang out. Over the past four years a lot has changed. The biggest change is having kids. Last night’s BBQ had four little ones in attendance. Last year it was only my little guy and a two week old.

Unlike our previous years conversations which mostly focused on our careers this year we bonded as we talked about our kids, asked each other for advice, and smiled as our little ones drummed on the coffee table together. It was a wonderful way to spend Independence Day.
