Last weekend, I zoomed to Chicago for some exciting events for the Show Me a Story book tour. It was a wonderful trip filled with kind faces, incredibly creative children, a zippy glass elevator in the hotel (gulp!), and inquisitive teachers and parents. I was so delighted and honored to spend the weekend with lovely people in a super city.
Chicago Children's Museum at Navy Pier where I was so impressed by the creative exhibits and sweet staff. And, um, the children and families that made Memory Cards with me were unbelievably creative. Oh my! They had it going ON!
Don't worry, this child's Memory Card reads "Fire" because he went to the fire station Christmas party where his grandfather used to be a fire fighter. Oh, this little boy was SO sweet and funny!
Tom and I walked to the end of Navy Pier where we seemed to be the only ones willing to brave the frigid wind. Night was coming, and I was determined to stare into the milky blue waters of the Lake Michigan before it was time to go. We caught a gorgeous sunset and we were serenaded on our way to dinner. Such beautiful gifts!
It is so nice to soar, to go on adventures, to meet crowds of wonderful, new people. It is fun to drift and gaze and wander. It is also so nice to come home.
