summer in the city

Ok, so it's not quite summer, but it sure has been lovely here in Chicago. The winters here really, really suck, and once there's even a hint of spring sunshine, the city comes out of hibernation. Here are some of my favorite things about Chicago in the spring/summer (really, it's one season, since the summer is sooooo nice).
_city life has a soundtrack [everyone drives around with their windows down and music playing. this kind of adds to my illusion that i live in a movie.]
_walking [don and i average 10 miles each weekend when the weather is nice exploring]
_free events in millenium park
_kids [young and old] playing in the fountain at the park
_beaches! [we're the 3rd coast!]
_neighborhood festivals
_cubbies games!
_wearing skirts
_outdoor cafes
_open windows
