here is piglet facing a sculpture outside the art institute of chicago. i was mostly in evanston and skokie, with the final morning in the city.
the focus of my visit was my new best friend noa who turned 3 yesterday. we had such a good time together, singing 'old macdonald' 23 times (and wondering why there were no pandas on the farm), and playing house, and airport, and reading books about maisie, and going to the museum for the very first time. we are terribly proud of noa, because when she saw the monet painting of the bridge with the lilies, she recognised it. 'the book in the bathroom!' she cried.
