NAVY PIER 07-05-2008

My Dad is a retired Police officer and has worked in Security at NAVY PIER for 11 years. He will be retiring from there this September.

Josh just threw a frisbee...


Picked up these cool R.DAKIN & CO. 'DREAM PETS' at the HOLLYWOOD MIRROR on Belmont today! They resemble characters that my friends MITCH O' CONNELL and DAVID SHELDON use in their art.

Have you ever had someone say they would call you...and then never call? Several times? For something that would benefit them and their company or business? Well, I have and it is extremely agrevating. What is even more ridiculous, is to have that person spin it and put the blame on you. Oh well.... The statement "If you want something done right, you need to do it yourself" has rung true for me time and time again.

It was a beautiful 82 degrees in Chicago today, so we decided to pay a return visit to the zoo!
In front of the carousel
Sipping a MAI TAI on the new SUN DECK at STINGRAY BAY!

Josh was actually able to pet the sharks. Sara and I pet several STINGRAYS.
