Sunday in the Park


Today we watched Qixi, a Chinese fairytale about a cow herder and a weaving girl, told in four parts by Chinese dancers around Millennium Park.

It was really beautiful.


Sophie sat on her dad's shoulders for a better view. What a smart girl.


Kenna and Michal jumped off the walls in Millennium Park because they believe all walls should be jumped off of.

We ate Pan Asian food for dinner and I went to the restaurant next door to get butter for Michal and Kenna's noodles. Michal announced repeatedly that she loved her Chinese food. I didn't have the heart to tell her that pad thai noodles with butter and salt don't actually qualify as Chinese food. In fact, they don't even qualify as Thai food.

Afterward the girls sat on a cow in front of the Chicago Cultural Center, which is probably the most beautiful building in downtown Chicago. It has a Tiffany glass dome and exquisite inlaid glass mosaic tiles.


And finally, we walked to the eyeball sculpture. A little strange in my opinion but I guess art is a subjective thing and one person's art is another person's very large bloodshot eyeball.
