A very quick visit.
Monday we all went to Chicago to see Emma. Patrick Sr. had not seen her new place yet and well...he had the day off and Katie did not have volleyball so away we went.
I drove down and Patrick was able to keep watch of his phone.
At one point, around Hoffman Estates, there was a man in front of me who was driving irrationally.
Do you want to hear what he was doing? He must have had a lap top sitting on the chair next to him because the whole time he was looking down to his right. Swerving. Looking up. Looking down to the right. I could tell he was reading. It was driving me wild. Finally we passed him and I could stop obsessing. He was an accident waiting to happen. What an idiot.
After lunch at Hamburger Mary's in Andersonville we walked down Clark to get a coffee for Emma and a stop in at Brimfield.
Of all days to walk around Chicago. Burrrr. Patrick was so cold we could not get him to leave the Starbucks.
I think these are fish pails. What do you think?
I was so excited to use my Nikon with the Lensbaby in Chicago.
When I picked it up to take a picture, I realized that I forgot to put in the Card. No card. No pictures. Boo hoo. Well...at least, no pictures with a good camera.
The iphones are good for moments. But clarity and focus and backlighting. Not good at all.
I did what I could and recorded our fun day without fancy flare and blur and bokeh.
And in the very back of the store...an Airstream!!!
We showed Patrick around DePaul a little bit. Emma is going to Grad School there. She will get her Master in counseling.
Then we went to the warmest place in the city.
Warmest and freest place in the city. Is that how you spell free est?
Or is that not a word? Perhaps you can not be freer than free.
That was just about it. A nice, quick, fun visit.
Hope you had a nice day!
Lots of love,
