MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR CHICAGO IN THE SUMMER
Our family’s Fourth of July traditions are probably much like your own. Most years, there are plenty of hot dogs and burgers to go around and some combination of sparklers and fireworks. In the past, when the holiday landed on a weekend, we drove up to Minneapolis to see Emilie’s side of the family. But with the Fourth landing squarely in the middle of the week this year, it looks like the Ulmers will be sticking around Huntley for Independence Day. While it’s too bad we won’t get out to see my wife’s family, I’m not opposed to having an easygoing holiday here at home. We may even make it out to the fireworks show. Since they started having fireworks at Deicke Park, the traffic has been far more tolerable than in years past. Once, I actually missed the whole thing while sitting in my car trying to get to the old location! Maybe we’ll head there early and bring a Frisbee to toss around. I can’t think of a better way to welcome the summer.
This is probably my favorite time of year. As someone who has been to Florida in the summertime, I can tell you that I’d take Illinois over Florida any day of the week. About 80 degrees with a breeze beats 90 and humid in my book. Plus, we have the Cubs. Emilie and I always tried to get to a Cubs game once a year in the past, but it has become difficult with our boys’ busy schedules.
into another hockey season. As I’ve said before, both boys have passions for very different things. At some point this summer, I’d like to take the boys out on one of those Chicago architecture boat tours. I’ve never been on one, but I’ve heard it’s fascinating. As you cruise down the waterway, you learn about the history and architecture of the city. Despite growing up here, Chicago’s skyline still interests me and is one of the most varied I’ve seen. I’d love to learn its story. Hopefully the boys find it as intriguing as I do. Chicago is a beautiful town, and it really shows this time of year. I’m sure many of you have your own exciting summer plans. If you run into any aches or pains along the way, please swing by the clinic and let us lend you a hand.
