A Trip Downtown

Last night we went up to Millennium Park to hear a free concert which was part of the Grant Park Music Festival. The program consisted of two or three chorale pieces, but to tell the truth, I didn't really notice the music much. We had a picnic outside and played with Wiggle, and just enjoyed being out among people on a Friday night. The night was beautiful, the food was delicious, and we had a wonderful time.

After the concert, we decided to walk around for a few minutes to kill time before we got back on the bus. There were tons of people out enjoying the uncharacteristically cool weather. Kids seemed to be having the most fun - running, screaming, laughing. Sounds permanently associated with summer, but ones that I don't get to hear very often living in a dicey neighborhood in the city.

Fun in the new Burnham Pavilion

Splashing in Crown Fountain.

Chicago in the summertime is truly awesome.
