Super Fun Time: Chicago: Thanksgiving
On Wednesday Katie and I drove to Chicago to take in a few fun Thanksgiving and Christmas events.
Wednesday afternoon we headed to the Christkindlemarket on Daley plaza. Emma has gone to this the last few years because it is right outside of the law office she works at. She sees the tree go up and the little huts erected. She likes to get a boot cup to drink hot chocolate out of and buy a bag of spiced nuts.
We found a nice parking spot near the plaza. This made me happy. It cost 13$ for two hours. That may be the most I have ever paid at a meter. But that was okay. It was worth it.
I love this Picasso. I mean come on. It's Picasso.
The artist never said what it was. He did however have an afghan dog and I think this is what it is.
This is a iphone blooper. I love it.
“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
A little German quote for a German market.
It was pretty and festive and fun to be together.
The next morning we got up and went to the parade. I'll show you a few of those pictures tomorrow.
Have a lovely day!
