A Perfect Summer in the City Weekend

I'm a day late on the weekend recap, but my weekend was a day longer than usual so I'm just catching up now.  We started out with no set plans, but it ended up turning into one of those great summertime city weekends where the days are so fun and full that you're exhausted on Monday morning.  Or Tuesday morning for me since I took Monday off.  :)  We spent most of our weekend eating, exploring, boating, and beaching.  There really is nothing better than Chicago in the summer.

I was a little under the weather on Friday evening (and still exhausted from last weekend), so we laid low, but more than made up for it the rest of the weekend.

Saturday was a really hot day and we got a little brave (or stupid) and decided to spend the day outside.  Not our best idea.  We wanted to do some more neighborhood exploring and did a couple of Wicker Park city walks.  This neighborhood tops my list of those that we need to explore further-- I just wish it would have been a smidge cooler so we could have enjoyed it more! 

After some architectural exploring, a tour of retail spaces that no longer exist, and a visit with Cowileo we stopped in at The Boundary to watch the soccer games and enjoy some beer and bar food. 

I think we may have both suffered a little heatstroke on Saturday and we returned home totally wiped out.  We were planning to head to a street festival that evening but ended up falling asleep (oops) and then waking up to torrential downpours.  So we ordered in from Q, one of our favorite BBQ restaurants in Chicago, and called it a night.

On Sunday my good friend Mike took us out on Lake Michigan on his boat.  I think it's actually the first time that we have been out on the Lake on a non-tour boat since we have lived here and it was the perfect way to spend a warm Sunday in the city.

Alex's weekend fun ended after our day on the water, but mine continued on Monday.  I got some stuff done around the house and made a batch of marinara sauce.  Random, I know.  But it's better to do it on a day when I'm around since it's a long slow cooking process.

My bff Alexis always has Mondays off so we took advantage of our overlapping weekends and headed to the beach.  It was another blistering hot day, so it was wonderful to spend it at Lake Michigan again.  Not a bad way to end the weekend!
