A perfect Chicago evening

I still find myself constantly surprised by the quality and variety of free activities I find in my home city, but never more so than during the Grant Park Music Festival.

Last Friday, we took the boys to Millennium Park for a night of classical music . We packed a picnic for us, picked up some Freddie’s Pizza for the boys and settled in for a perfect evening. I realized as soon as I sat down, that I had arrived at my “happy place.” The architecture, the environment, the music — all combine for a couple of hours of city bliss.

So thanks to the Festival artists, sponsors, park district and City of Chicago for making it all possible. Enjoy the pictures.

No surprise, they even managed to get in on a little baseball game before the concert started.
