One of the many reasons I love living in Chicago is that we get all four seasons. Watching the trees change in the fall, playing in the snow in the winter, listening to storms in the spring..and sweet summertime. Nothing beats summer in Chicago. Nothing.
If summer weather continues through September, as it has the past few years, we will be able to use the boat a bit longer. My parents 35th wedding anniversary is Sept. 11 and I think we are going to put something together for them. We have tix to Disney on Ice and I have signed up for two 5K's! I'm super excited!
Along with all of these major plans, I have a summer bucket list of fun things to do/ places we want to go. I wonder how much we can get done. :0)
~Go to Raging Waves waterpark-groupon bought
~Spend a day at Navy Pier, see the fireworks
~Use Shedd Pass once more before it expires
~See the new bug exhibit at the zoo
~Go on a carriage ride downtown-groupon bought
~Visit the drive in movie theater
~Go hiking at Starved Rock
~Take the boys to a Kane County Cougars game
~Have dinner at RPM Italian downtown(anyone know whos restaurant that is?)
~Spend a day at Centennial Beach
~Take Trevor on a train ride downtown
~Register me and Trevor for summer reading program
~Drive down to Bloomington and go to the childrens museum/take Jamie to lunch
~Go on the ice cream social ride at Lake Geneva-groupon bought
Thats a good start! Our town and the one next to us have "crusin' nights" where old cars line up and people walk the downtown area to see. Shops stay open late, there is food and music, its a fun way to spend your Thursday or Friday evening. We are two blocks from downtown and looking forward to walking over.
I have a feeling summer of 2012 will be the best yet!
What do you have planned this summer? Any big trips? Special occasions? Trips to Chicago? ;)
Have a fun and safe weekend!!!
