While visiting my mom in the southwest suburbs, we decided to spend an afternoon at downtown Chicago' newish Millennium Park (the park is almost ten years old, but since I no longer live in the Windy City, it still feels new to me). Apparently toddlers love the bean. T could have spent hours playing with his reflection. Hours.
Once we manged to pull T away from the bean, we visited Target's Family Fun tent, where F hoola hooped, P played with blocks, and T took it all in. Eventually all of us starting dancing to tunes sung by a woman named Miss Lori. F has some MOVES!
Finally, at the end of the afternoon, we checked out Millennium Park's gigantic, crowded, dangerously slippery spray park. I thought the kids would love it but they couldn't adjust to the "really really cold water" (outside temps were below 80 degrees). So we packed up and headed back to suburbia. A good day.
