I spent the next day at the Chicago Institute of Art. I saw much of the museum but I think it would take several days to see it all. My favorite room was Asian sculpture...a huge room filled with Buddhas of every size and material and these little dancing figures. It was so inspirational. In addition to the Buddhas were Monet's, Van Gogh's, O'Keeffe's, Seurat's Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte and Grant Wood's American Gothic and so much more.
After a day of culture I hit the Miracle Mile. My goal was to go to American Girl Place. I really have no children to buy for but I've always been fascinated with those dolls and when I got there I wished I was eight again! It was a great trip and sprinkled in there was Chicago style pizza and excellent croissants. It was a great city to explore and I have only just begun. I can't wait to go back.
Sounds like such a good time. That photo of the sun on the tree...wow!
Thanks Yvonne, it was! Just what I needed...
You know I love Chicago, too. And, since the major clean up years ago it's a fun, clean city to visit.
And, right now all the flowers.
We have the Pleasant Company right over this way in Middleton. I've never been but I hear when they have their yearly sales the lines start forming early, early in the morning.
I have three little granddaughters, I guess I should get on the stick, yes? lolol :)Bea
