i’m amazed that i haven’t been ’round these parts since may of last year. it’s not that i haven’t wanted to write, it’s just that i get overwhelmed about what to write that i end up not writing at all.
am i alone in this?
a few days ago, my dad & i booked tickets to fly to milwaukee, wi this summer to scratch off a few more mlb stadiums off of my list: miller park (milwaukee, wi) & chicago’s wrigley field & u.s. cellular field.
seeing a game at every stadium in the majors has long been a dream of mine, & i can think of no better person to share that experience with than my dad. after this trip, i will have been to a game at eight of the thirty stadiums – a solid start.
i’m hoping that perhaps my dad & i can make this an annual tradition where we visit a different city, take in it’s sights & sounds, and take in a few games at the home park.
while in chicago, i fully intend to eat copious amounts of deep-dish pizza, try the local beers, and of course, visit the art institute of chicago (two of my top-five favorite pieces of art of all time are located within it’s walls – how could i not go?!?)
i’m overwhelmed by the thought of everything i *could* be doing, but won’t get the opportunity to do. i realize that i’ll drive myself crazy thinking like that, so instead i’m trying to focus on the many awesome things i will get to do, and if i decide i love the experience, make plans to experience more of it at a later time (that’s an entire blog entry for another date – lots to consider there, no doubt!).
do you have any suggestions for must-sees or must-dos while we’re in the chicago/milwaukee/green bay area? i welcome your thoughts.
