run joey run. or rather, phil.

our day involved lots of running.
not what you might be imagining, but running was definitely a part of the day.

[running and jumping around while at the Bean.]

[running into his uncle's arms.]

see, told ya? lots of running.
the day also involved a lot of bike-riding.
it's the cheapest, healthiest way to get around - plus with how humid the day was, the breeze that comes when you are going at a pace faster than walking is very welcoming.

and look who i found on my bike seat?
i told you he always pops up.
he finds a way into my purse every time.

we also enjoyed gyros from johnny's grill, burrito bowls and guac at chipotle, and then ended the night with a chocolate-chip cookie pizza. it's been a good weekend with uncle phil.probably one of the best things that happens when a friend comes into town is that you get to be a tourist all over again. you do all the tourist-y the Bean and Navy Pier. lovelovelove it.and i can tell you with all that running and biking (plus the humidity in Chicago right now - whew!), i'm going to sleep well tonight.

see you all tomorrow!
