This past Friday we decided to take a break from the unpacking and organizing and had some fun. We started our day by having a picnic at a park about 5 miles away. It was a lovely day. I loved the Gazebo! They have an indoor Olympic sized pool that is free for Ben to swim in. We may have to look into that!
Our next stop was a very large Chicago Public Library that was across from the park. I took two pictures before being told that I couldn't take pictures! LOL! We will be getting a card soon. A Chicago public library card also gives you access to the museums downtown! Gotta love that! There are also many programs to look into. To be quite honest, I haven't had time to read all of the fliers I picked up! We will focus on that getting involved in the community stuff soon!
Our final stop was our favorite place downtown, Ed Debevic's. We had a great dinner. Our waitress, Tina Latina, was a hoot. Ben loved the chocolate shake and I dig their cream corn! (See Sherry, it isn't mushy and gross!) We wanted to bring home the large blow up ketchup bottle, but couldn't swing it :0) We even got to see the staff dance on the counters! Fun day! Love this city!
