Monday night Wallyball was awesome! It was all our first time playing so we were in the same boat. Wallyball combines the right amount of fun and exercise to keep you wanting more! It was awesome to see how much our skills progressed by the end of the evening. Heck, Kelli even invented her own serve where the ball disappears right before your eyes! It was a great way get rid of that Monday stress. I can’t count how many times I said “just one more game!” E&A brought us together and encouraged us to try this new, amazing sport which we will definitely see on the calendar again. The evening ended with laughs, sweat and salted caramel pumpkin ice cream. That’s normal, right?!

It’s been awhile since I’ve felt like a kid again, and our pottery class did the trick! Having clay all over my hands, arms and under my fingernails brought me back to my childhood. There is something about being dirty that makes me cringe and happy at the same time! We all began nice and slow on our pottery wheels trying to keep control of our clay and the splatter to a minimum. It didn’t take long before we realized this isn’t as easy as it looks! Some of us created beautiful bowls and vases while others’ looked like the work of a kindergartener(myself). All and all our creations were our own and we were proud of our art, perfect or lop-sided. I can confidently say that we threw around some clay and some laughs as well!

We began the week with Bocce Ball and $4 burgers. And no, they were not small dinky patties, but full size delicious juicy burgers that are regularly priced at $11. Our guys vs gals bocce battles were pretty intense! We all learned a thing or two about the game. The weather was beautiful on Wednesday for sand volleyball in Grant Park as well as Thursday outdoor movie night. The showing was a remake of the American classic, Footloose. It was a great movie to conclude our monthly summer “movies in the park” series. We all shared snacks, drinks and good company. Some of us even danced our way to the car! Come out soon to see what the rest of the month has in store for you!

When you live in a big city, sometimes it’s easy to forget the little gems that make it so great. The Chicago E&A’ers got a chance to participate in our first ever Scavenger Hunt! We broke up into teams and ran all over downtown Chicago, searching for landmarks and collecting interesting information. Did you know the sculpture at Millennium Park that we lovingly call “The Bean” is actually named Cloud Gate? Who knew?! We also learned that it is not as easy to find a book of matches as it might have been a few years ago, am I right Scavenger Hunters? We roared with the lions at the Art Institute, interviewed each other in front of ABC Studios, and blew bubble gum bubbles in front of the Wrigley Building, and that’s only scratching the surface! After a day like that how could we not feel proud to call Chicago our home!
