Since we had a couple extra days in Chicago, because we had decided to stay for the weekend instead of doing shabbat in Minneapolis, we decided to take advantage of our free Friday. We took the kids to a beautiful beach near Northwestern University called Lighthouse beach.
The sand there was beautiful and clean and soft. The water, although pretty cold, was gorgeous. The kids didn’t care one bit that it was cold. They loved the idea that the were swimming in one of the great lakes. The thing I loved was that the beach had life guards so I felt much safer with kids in the water.
It really was a beautiful last day in Chicago. We spent shabbat by friends and then headed out early Sunday morning to Minneapolis for a day of fun at Mall of America. But more on that next post.
