And what kid doesn't love that?
And as long as you're in the Loop and have a kid with you, you have to stop here:
Kids use the bottom slant as a slide. If you sit on your jacket, you go faster!
They stopped in at home for a quick visit, then they were off to here:
There's one across the street from Great Big Urban High School. Usually, it's just a treat for road trips. But tonight fell into the "special" category. (yeah, there's a marketing guy doing a backflip somewhere. and i used to work at Great Big Ad Agency that had them as a client, so i may even know the backflipping guy)
But I digress...
After a lovely dinner, they were off to one of these in the parking lot of Great Big Urban High School this weekend:
I don't think UK1 quite got on that particular ride. But she did a bunch and came back past her bedtime and wound up TIGHT! I got the honor of putting her to bed..... You knew there would be a payback, right?
So what did UK2 and I do? We took a long, leisurely walk here:
The store in my neighborhood is closing. Apparently, MY business alone was not enough to keep it going. Now I have to hike here to shop at Lucy:
'Cause THAT'S so easy to drop in on......
But UK2 napped and was otherwise cooperative while I got $200 worth of stuff for $70. And this was round two. I was there last weekend working that closing sale too. So yeah, I think I'm set on that and can stop the madness now.
So a fun day all around, I think. Today was more laid-back. Tomorrow, I might catch up to my friend who started me on this blogging thing.
Hope you're all having a wonderful long weekend!
