I was afraid that the rain would spoil the fun, but it was quite on the contrary, it was awesome 4th of July.
In spite of the rain and fog, some people were up for a swim with the Duck tour.
With all this fog, I thought I switched continents and we are in London.
It turns out wet weather is the perfect time for a zoo visit. Couple of friendly toucans invited us for tea.
The bears were providing the honey as usual of course, some of them even got a taste while waiting.
Only the flamingos were in very pinkish-happy mood:
We visited Prudential and I took couple of pictures from the top.
Can you believe this is the 52nd floor?
Here is something I haven't seen in years- sugar crystals on a stick! That's what they served us with the coffee.
A nice walk through the city was just what we needed after 3 days of rain.
Sun+water+kids= always winning combination.
Add some modern architecture to the taste and you have the perfect vacation.
Isn't it awesome?
I wish we had the time to try one of these:
In the park there were celebrations for 4th of July and some people even got dressed for the occasion:
What?! Of course we had to know if the sword is real!
Boy, I miss this kind of clothing.
Isn't she unreal?
What is a trip without a couple of live statues:
And my favorite street musicians:
Some were busy feeding the horses, other ones were riding them for an eternity.
The sun came up and life was beautiful enough for a beach visit. Short visit ( because of the cold water) but nice one.
We even had the time to find a house for a hermit crab.
And happiness fit in my palm.
So, I am looking forward to the future, when we would visit again.
