Snapshots of Summer

In an effort to catch up in blog world, I figured it was about time for a "Here's everything I've been up to" type of post. So that is what this is. Lots of outdoor time, savoring the too-short summer season in Chicago.  It's been pretty charming and all American, too, with baseball, farmers markets, and plenty of time out back with our new grill. I hope your summer has been equally satisfying!

Hunger Walk 5k at Soldier Field
15,000 strong, pretty inspiring

"Who me? Sure I'll eat a pastry!"

Green City Market on a Saturday morning.

I spy flamingos at the Lincoln Park Zoo!

A couple of dudes on a nice little stroll, post farmer's market.

Kane County Cougars
Single A baseball at its finest.

Lots of evening walks happening around here.

Another weekend, another market.

Summer food is the BEST
The best part is we're only half way through. That leaves plenty of time for a Cubs game, a movie in the park, and more visits to the beach! I'm just going to soak it all up, and return back to these blog posts once it's February and Chicago is back to crappy weather.
