Yellow Kicks

By now I am entirely ready for spring. I think the perfect way to prepare would be to get a pair of yellow shoes.Anne Klein

The Windy City

I spent last weekend in Chicago. I had such a great time. It was nice to get out and spend some time with a dear friend.

We did nothing exceptionally unusual. We saw some of the famous sites and I had the most amazing time! We went to Navy Pier. I think the time to go would be when it is warmer.

We spent some time shopping on Michigan Avenue.

We went to Water Tower Place.

We went to the Field Museum. This museum is amazing. It is so huge, and we were only able to see about half of it before we were too tuckered out to continue. I cannot wait to go back!

In order to free up some much needed space in my parents small kitchen I suggested that they put up some pegboard to hang their pots, pans, utensils and other items. Here is how it looks. If I had done it in my place I would have put a frame around the pegboard and I would have painted it as well. Oh yeah, I would put the broom and dust pan somewhere else, maybe on a different pegboard for cleaning supplies!

At any rate, it gets the job done quite nicely!

Cotton Candy

We took my nephew to a carnival last week. He ate cotton candy for the first time ever. He approached it with a small amount of uncertainty, but once he dug in he really enjoyed it.

Once he had had enough he gave the rest to my dad.

Whoa dad, no one is going to steal that cotton candy away from you okay!
