Stephanie at Suckers Candy, Roscoe Village, Chicago
This weekend my 10-year-old niece, Stephanie, is visiting from Oak Creek, a suburb of Milwaukee. I don’t think she’s ever stayed with me for a weekend… unless it was when she was a baby and I lived in Wisconsin. Yesterday I took off work early and we mostly just hung around the neighborhood. Which, btw, I think I had to borrow a kid just to fit in around here. Actually, it’s more babies and little kids than older kids in Roscoe Village. Walking around yesterday, Steph and I couldn’t decide if we saw more dogs or more strollers.
This photo is outside Suckers Candy on Damen/School. I’d walked past before, but I’d never been inside, so I thought this was the perfect time. They had all sorts of old time candy, a few kinds of modern candy, some homemade looking chocolates, and homemade ice cream. The ice cream is what we decided to try.
Today I’m not sure what we’re going to do. It poured last night but the forecast just shows clouds today, not rain. Still, clouds would probably make a trip to the Sears Tower not that worth it. I’m thinking maybe the Notebaert Nature Museum would be fun. We’re for sure seeing the new Hilary & Hayley Duff movie, Material Girls, that opens this weekend.
