Summer is my favorite season. Living in Chicago you never know when the nice summer days will end. Usually we have a few good weeks, then the high humidy, heat index and ozone warnings strike. This week has been perfect, So on a perfect holiday weekend we Chicago folks head down to beautiful Lake Michigan.
I spent my Friday at Navy Pier, Millenium Park and of course, The Taste of Chicago, I am so sunburn but it was well worth it. It was a special family day with my daughter and mother.
For a day at Lake Michigan the only appropriate foot wear is FLIP FLOPS! I love the sand on my feet.
