Last Saturday night, between the evening downpours, we visited Buckingham fountain.
In all my years living and visiting Chicago I had never been. It is very pretty. I'd have liked to sit and relax...but there are no benches.
Right when we arrived I heard a band in a distance, Emma said there is always something going on in the city.
Then I heard a song I knew and really loved.
It was Yellow.
I grabbed Emma's arm and screeched, COLDPLAY!
She jumped and screamed. Cause I scared here. Eeek
But. yep. It was
Coldplay preforming at Soldier's Field and we could hear every song and we could hear the crowd cheering and singing along.
So we had a free concert.
Just beyond the fountain was a 'wedding tent'.
They were playing music too.
And they had a Good Humor truck for the guests to have a Chocolate Eclair bare or a Strawberry Shortcake bar.
Cute. Charming. Nostalgic.
Today is Katie's final day of beach volleyball. The training has been very good and she has enjoyed it.
She, once again, did not have a partner to go to tournaments with.
All I can think of is....
not. meant. to. be.
Can you believe it is the end of July already?
