Where has Summer Gone?

July has come and gone! First sooo hot, now sooo rainy and cool.

We celebrated Fran's 30th birthday on July 9th with a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry (her wish not ours). First we wanted to go to the Zoo, but it was humid and hot, and we didn't know if it would be raining. We love the museum, even Dan was very much entertained. The German 'U-Boot' is always fascinating. Fran was more interested in the hatching chicks. And Simon loved everything!

Then, of course, a couple of days later we had to go to the Zoo. Very disappointing! The animals were nowhere to be found, it was most likely too hot for them, especially the polar bears. We saw one lonely Giraffe with sagging skin who seemed to enjoy the hot weather.

We also went to the Railroad Days Parade in West Chicago where our friends Rudi and Ann Rust were Grand Marshalls!

Of course, Simon is familiar with all the Al Fresco restaurants in Roscoe Village, he loves to go out and mingle!

All in all, Simon gives July a thumbs up!
