I love my home that sits in a nice, quiet suburb. And I love being only a few minutes from a major city. In my opinion, it’s the best of both worlds! I enjoy going downtown for the museums, the culture, the wonderful restaurants, and the weird sights!
Two weeks ago, when the kids and I headed downtown, we saw this –
Yeah, he’s a leprechaun. You never know who you’ll meet on the street.
This is someone’s hair. I’d think you’d notice it if your hair flew off. I guess I’m wrong.
Salmonella free eggs? Personally, I like playing Russian Roulette with my breakfast. Scrambled, poached, poisonous? You never know!
It seems there are always entertainers at the train stations. The kids like putting dollars in their hats. It was unanimous that this guy is better than Squidward.
“The Bean” We decided that if this was a pinto bean and someone ate it, the resulting gas would flatten all of Chicago.
I asked the hostess if they had shrimp on the menu. She looked at me, completely unamused, and said, “No. We only have oyster crackers and hot dog water.” I think she was lying.
But the best part of going on an adventure downtown are the precious sights you catch. The moments when your kids stop fighting and surprise you. It makes me smile to watch my kids interact with each other. I love to see them being goofy together. . .
Or comforting one another when someone bumps their head and gets hurt. . .
Or whispering secrets to each other. . .
Or making faces in an attempt to avoid getting their pictures taken. . .
With that much sibling support, my kids feel like they can take on the world!
