On the first Saturday I'd had free in over a month, I originally planned to stay at home and rest. Seeing how gorgeous the day was, I changed my mind. I wanted to go out and take some more pictures, partially because I anticipated the arrival of my new lens.
I headed down to Millennium park, and went first for the Bean. Moving south, I ended up at the Crown Fountain. Anyone who knows me knows that I adore kids, like no one's business. And seeing kids play in water is almost other-worldly. I might not have kids of my own, but I can still appreciate the joy that parents feel when they see their own having fun and enjoying life.
Well this little guy is runnin around, in and out, back and forth between the promenade and under the waterfall. At one point, he comes out of the stream, and rather than just running his hands through his hair to get the water out, he holds his arms and hands out in a part-frustrated, part-Godfather-esque stance and just starts shaking his head like crazy. It was awesome to see his expression and just his abandon. It definitely made my going out worthwhile.
