adventure in the city: olive park.

having lived in chicago for 8 years, you would think i would have been everywhere in the city. i thought that i had.

ryan: i'm taking you somewhere today you've never been before.
: really?

: yeah, it's a surprise.

: i've probably been
there. if not recently, probably back during college-days.
ryan: i don't think so.

we hopped onto our bikes, and he proved me wrong. i was in total awe - and giddy-excited to discover a new place. he found it the other day when i was having an art night with the ladies, and he had gone on a solo bike adventure and discovered this place.

and a shout out to fellow chicagoans - have you been to olive park? i seriously have never stumbled across here. i don't think many people know about it. it was so quiet, serene - hardly anyone around. and such an amazing view of the city. this park is somewhat tucked away between navy pier and lakeshore drive.

[oops, didn't see that until after we were on the rocks...hehe]

pretty happy with himself with finding the new discovery.
i was pretty impressed, too!

we LOVE our adventures in the city.
