We arrived back from Switzerland welcomed by beautiful Chicago summer weather. We could not have asked for a better way to cap off the weekend after our lovely trip. And, we have been waiting far too long for some nice weather to enjoy in Chicago, so a day of playing in the sand along Lake Michigan was certainly overdue.
This was The Little Guy’s first trip to the beach (aside from a quick visit last summer when he was too young to sit in the sand). He LOVED IT! We played with him for quite a while and then he entertained himself until we decided he had soaked up enough sun and it was time to return home. He fussed a bit as we left because he wanted to continue playing. But we will certainly return throughout the summer. (My little secret – it is the best entertainment I have found for him yet so I may even get a chance to read a bit of a book while he plays by himself next time we visit. Wouldn’t that be blissful! I am three quarters of the way through The Fountainhead and have been in a holding pattern for a while. I’d love a chance to finish that up.)
For those curious based on his attire, The Man is a major Philadelphia sports fan. He decked himself out in Phillies’ gear but he has an arsenal of Flyers, Eagles and Sixers attire as well. They have had a rough couple of years in that town but they had a great run not long ago. You can’t win ’em all.
