I just returned home from a jam-packed weekend in the city with Kate and Bean. You would think, being downtown with a girl of almost-six, that we wouldn’t see very much. Well, you’d be wrong! It’s actually faster to see certain things with a young kid, if you just relax and let them “drive”. In two days, we went to Millennium Park, the Adler Planetarium, the Shedd Aquarium, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Field Museum, and the Sears “I’ll never call it Willis” Tower. We also spent a bunch of time watching scenes from “Transformers 3” being shot right outside our hotel.
One of the things that was hilarious to me was that Bean was insistent that “Chicago” should be spelled “Shicago” or pronounced with the hard “ch” sound, because everyone is doing it wrong. Smart girl.
I have way too many stories to actually post, so I made a little movie for you (and Scott, her dad) to check out. I took 500 pictures over the weekend with my loaner Olympus PEN PL-1 (yay!); don’t worry, I didn’t post them all. I took some of the best pictures of my life over this weekend (thanks, Olympus!). By the way, the pictures look a little grainy on youtube: grr. They really aren’t.
Oh, and that final picture? I’ll be posting the back story about that one tomorrow, if Scott doesn’t fly up here and kill me before then.
