The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 35

The Good:
I was in Chicago over the weekend for one last summer hurrah and my cousin's Bar Mitzvah. Avi, Noam, and I enjoyed time at the Field Museum on Friday before the festivities began. Noam loved the Egypt exhibit, singing "Pharoh, let my people go" while he looked at mummies! Best may have been this exchange with Avi..."look Noam, it's a dinosaur named Sue!" -- Noam: "aw...did he die?"

The Random:
Flying west on Thursday we were racing sunset - so cool to see the sun set in one direction and darkness in the other.

The Fun:
There is an amazing new playground at Millennium Park. The boys has a blast! So many amazing structures and environments to explore. Noam had to be dragged to see the dinosaurs!

Sounds like a fab trip! I love the Pharoah Pharoah song and have big memories of my kids on the "huh" part that make me smile. I bet the boys were adorable singing that.
