Winter has a strange way of making even the palest of pale girls who loathe the heat (i.e. me) wish it were summer. Until then, I’ll continue to look back on summers past and make a ‘bucket list’ of things to do in Chicago this summer.
One of my favorite memories from summer 2012 was when my oldest nephew (a.k.a. Stinkbug) insisted we create a “water slide” in our backyard with freezing cold hose water while it was maybe 50 degrees outside and completely overcast. My sister shot the photo on the right and then also found the photo of the adorable little girl on the left a few weeks later, giving us another round of laughs. Kids these days.
