Spring Break is upon us bringing with it sunshine and near sixty degree temperatures (for today at least). We took this opportunity to venture into Chicago for a quick lunch with Charlie and a jaunt over to the Garfield Park Conservatory.
It was a day for flowers…
and making wishes.
My mom came along, never one to pass up a trip to the city, while my Dad stayed behind, never one to pass up March Madness.
Charlie even made an appearance at the conservatory.
Rosebud left town yesterday on a volunteer trip. I will pick her up on Sunday and we will head off on our own adventure (otherwise known as more college visits) and I will be away from these two for several days.
The forecast shows more winter temperatures for the beginning of next week, but today promised an end in sight. Today was the promise of more adventures. Today was the promise of Spring.
Today made me smile.
I intend to enjoy the remainder of Spring Break with my family. See you on the flip side.
