Could there be a more beautiful day?

There's a cliche about Chicago weather - If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute and it will change.  This weekend was the perfect example of that.

Friday was cool but sunny.  Saturday was rainy. Sunday was a torrential downpour, while driving to our hometown I might add. That brings us to today....

It's 90 degrees

and our air conditioning does not work


Thankfully, our place stays pretty cool thanks to the two big trees on our property.  Matt started off by tackling the jungle of a lawn.  All the rain this week has made it quite difficult to get out there before it became what it was today. Once the jungle was tamed it was time for lunch.

We zipped in to Park Ridge and then off for a completely impromptu drive into the city that turned out to be a fantastic day.

Clearly with the beautiful weather, we were not the only ones with this idea.  We found parking near Navy Pier and walked along the river to the tourist mecca.  M loves the city and she does not care where we go.  G has only been to the city a few times, and he has no recollection of the place.

"Oh, Boats! Boats!"

Understandably, Navy Pier was packed but since we had no plan there were no worries.  A little Gelato and everyone was happy.

Feed Me!!
 We expected both kids to pass out on the way home, but they decided to stay awake.  That made for an interesting evening, but thankfully they are now asleep and will be much happier in the morning.

Come on summer!
