The summer weather was cooler than expected, but that didn’t impact our summer vacation plans. As a family, we traveled to our all time favorite city — Chicago. This city has much to offer to each member of my family: Chicago Cubs for my baseball crazed son and husband, shopping for my daughter, and great food and people watching for me.
One of the highlights of our trip this summer was to Millennium Park, located in the heartof downtown Chicago. We saw the incredible ampitheatre, walked through the gardens, played in the waterfall scultpures, and walked under and around the Cloud Gate Sculpture. Because it is in the shape of a huge silver lima bean, we call it the BEAN. Here is a picture of it, with our family in the reflection. You can see us only if you magnify it 1,000 times! I love this picture because it shows the beauty of the sculpture against the skyline of Chicago.
I hope you had a great summer vacation too! If you want to find out about other teacher’s vacations, visit their blogs and type the word vacation into the blog search area.
