The whole weekend began at the Springfield Amtrak Depot.
On Saturday we ran out to a gigantic antique mall. Here are the girls in front, ready to start.
And here I am with Jake.
On Saturday night we went to see an excellent Irish band called Sons and Daughters at the Double Door in the Wicker Park neighborhood. They were great, especially when a very drunk lead singer blurted/slurred out (between f-bombs) "Hello St.Louis"!
On Sunday we got up and went to the Wolf Flea Market. Here is a shot of the girls looking around
Here is a shot of Polly making a deal.
We stopped at an excellent restaurant for an outdoor lunch. Pizza in an Italian neighborhood!
After lunch we went to Oak Park and toured the Frank Lloyd Wright studio and homes in the area. Above and below are some detail shots of the studio.
We took a walking audio tour of the neighborhood.
The Nathan G. Moore House (1895/1923) 333 Forest Ave.
The Edward R. Hills-DeCaro House (1896/1906) 313 Forest Ave
The Laura Gale House (1906) 6 Elizabeth Court
Arthur B. Heurtley House (1902) 318 Forest Ave.
Frank Thomas House (1901) 210 Forest Ave.
We had a great time, thanks for setting it up Polly!
