Together Again! (Again!)

Surprise – Trisha and I are together again! She’s in Chicago for the weekend, to be joined soon from Texas by our friend Tanya. Tonight we rode our (well, my) bikes downtown for a picnic in Millennium Park. I thought we were going to see a free ballet performance, but that was yesterday – oops! my bad. We still enjoyed our picnic and the beauty of the park at night.

Trisha and Dottie - you'll have to take our word for it

    I’m so jealous you’re reunited with your BF. Mine all live far away:(

    As an aside. Chicago looks fantastic! As another aside, Don and I were going to go last year for my spring break, but I was too pregnant and they wouldn’t let me fly internationally. An another another aside. We’re most likely going to Chicago THIS spring break! Will have to hit you up for the where to eat/what to do:)
