Chicago is one beautiful city. Just look at the picture I snapped while rolling along in the trolley near the Field Museum. Oh my!
Thanks again to all of you readers who generously shared insider information that added so much pleasure to our trip. One of those tips let me know about the water play at Millennium Park. Thanks, Ken , from one happy little girl and her tickled-pink Momma.
I think a lot of us could learn a lesson from my little one. Here's how to make a friend. Remember, you have to be a little brave. Gather your courage. Smile. Walk up to a stranger who looks a little bewildered or lonely and say, "Want to play?"
And, if you are as lucky as I, there might just be a grandma nearby to catch time by the tail. You may well end up with a perfect picture of a perfect moment in the life of a happy child.
We all had so much fun at Millennium Park; Sloane and her new friend, her camera-happy Momma, her heavy-laden Daddy, and her time-catching Ibu.
Sloane is now officially a Piano ROCK STAR who has played to literally tens of people on the streets of Chicago.
Next up, a report from American Girl.
Sloane asked me to wait so that she could do a post, too.
Hope your summer is full of wonderful, photo-full adventures.
I took all the photos except teh two most perfect ones. Those were all my Mom's doing. And, since I'm in a Chicago mood, here's a song and dance I love.
