A Morning at The Glen
Yesterday morning Riley and I got into the car and drove north for a little bit to 'The Glen' in Glenview. We were going to meet up with one of our blogging friends, Sugar! After arriving just a little bit early (we weren't sure how bad traffic was going to be), Riley wanted out of the car. We walked around by the stores a little and by the fountain with the Navy statues. Riley was a little confused because while these statues looked like people, they sure didn't smell like people. I told her this was to honor the Naval aviators because this whole area used to be the Glenview Naval Air Station. Before long a car pulled up and there was our blogging friend Sugar and her mom!! After some initial sniffs, we all walked together for a while. We saw a family of ducks and some Canadian geese and some real nice lilypads that Sugar's mom said looked like a Monet painting! The park area of the Glen is pretty, with a real prairie feel. You can even see some of the nice little touches behind Sugar - there are cut outs in the wood in the shape of dragonflies! Riley and I had been to the Glen once before after finding out about it from Sugar's mom. But we both agree it was a lot more fun to enjoy it with friends!
