#makesmesmilemondays Summer in Chicago

I lived in Rome for a few years, in London for two. I've spend lengthy amounts of time in Paris, Edinburgh, New York City and Tel Aviv. But they say home is where the heart is, and my home is sweet home Chicago.
This past weekend's warmth and sunshine reminded me that summer in Chicago has unofficially arrived.My garden is finally in full bloom, my kids were begging me to go for a bike ride for Italian ice, and my daughter's kiddie pool opened for the season.

Summer in Chicago is the best: Nothing beats spending a day at the beach with my family, or hanging out in our backyard with a neighborly BBQ.  I love being able to ride our bikes to the Lincoln Park Zoo, stopping for cupcakes and at a Wizard of Oz inspired park on the way home. I love our neighborhood, Logan Square, which manages to be both trendy and urban and sometimes downright smalltownish. I love traveling the world via the restaurants, cultural events, neighborhoods, and festivals in Chicago. I also appreciate raising my kids here (Check out my top 7 reasons why I'm thankful that I'm raising my kids in Chicago).

I have been blessed with the opportunity to write about all things fun for families in Chicago for the Chicago Visitor's Bureau. If you're looking for fun things to do with your kids in Chicago this upcoming summer and beyond, visit me at Choose Chicago.
