We walked down to Grant Park to see if we could catch the Counting Crows performing. In the same place was the Taste of Chicago festival. We listened to a couple songs and then walked on. I'll put up a couple pictures soon of what we would have seen if we were 2 or 3 feet taller. We walked around, people watched, and tasted lots of things. We watched Navy Pier's fireworks. We wree a little far away but they were still nice. We wre near this drunk lady. She was talking to this couple and she started yelling "only in America!", as in only in america can oyu see yearly fireworks on July 4th. mmm hmm. So she was interesting anyway.
After it was all done we walked the nearest redline and made our way back tothe apartment. We walked a little more than 8 miles total. The bottoms of my feet were sting-y and sore after I took my sandals off. I drank a bunch of water, washed my face and my feet and went to bed.
Today we went out for breakfast and then packed up to leave. When we left they were taking Beth back to the emergency room probably to get her stiches out because her wound had gotten infected. Good thing the holiday is over so she can maybe sit still for a while and heal! We walked along the lake for a while before heading home. We made good time and the sky wasn't even totally dark yet by the time we got here. Tomorrow night we have the Nickleback/Three Doors Down concert at DTE. Hopefully we won't miss too much of it.
