You can’t drag my husband away from Chicago (well except, for some weekends to our second home in Madison) during the summer for the reason that winter is quite long here and you can really enjoy the city during the summer. Of course, I’ll have spring weather anytime but the fun outdoor stuff really happens during the summer.
Case in point, the weekend after the July 4th (where we got front row seats to the fireworks at the beach, just a few feet from the shoreline while picnicking with friends) we went to enjoy the fountain in downtown Chicago’s Millenium Park. The day after was the Block Party where Evan got to play outside the streets from 1pm until 8 in the evening.
If I had to do anything differently, I will be joining Evan in braving the blast cold water from the fire truck next year.
