I think we have hit our groove with this summer vacation thing. The keys are:
1. No absolute deadline to be on time anywhere.
2. A good mix of outdoor activity combined with food, water and clean bathrooms.
3. Knowing when everyone is about to hit the wall so you can either take a break or head for home.
Today was another repeat of yesterday for the most part. We did need to be at Len's office around lunchtime in order to sign and notarize our wills, living wills, etc. but otherwise the day was free. The girls and I caught the commuter train around 11 for the 15 minute ride into the city.
So off we went down the Chicago River for the 20 minute ride to Chinatown.
We got to the dock about 10 minutes early so the girls played around under the pagoda and on the rocks for a bit.
Back on the train!
