It was an absolutely beautiful day for the event. The sun was shining, it was warm and breezy. The lake was picturesque with sailboats in the distance. Just one of the million reasons why I love living in a city that is on Lake Michigan.
This year I tried something new, I attended the event with a friend and not my family. While I love doing these things with the family, the children are not nearly as appreciative of art as I am. They get very bored and tend to complain, making it very hard for me to have fun and browse the way I would like to. My husband likes the event, but since he was out of town all week, he willingly spent the day with the kids. I was very grateful to him for spending the day with them. I love my children dearly, but one week alone with them proved to test my nerves!
I had a successful day at the fair, I found the perfect fathers day gift for my own dad. I enjoyed a glass of white wine on the patio of the museum and found some spicy Bloody Mary mix for my husband to enjoy on Father's Day. I also found ice cube trays of "the scream" face. Drinks on ice will never be the same in this house again.
