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!
