Schaumburg, IL: Sculpture in the Cold

Tour, Day 11
Lexi and I met up for a fun girls-only lunch on Saturday. We decided to go to Weber Grill since the wait at Egg Harbor Cafe was ridiculously long. I was able to get a fairly healthy chicken dish and subbed out the included mashed potatoes for a second vegetable side of green beans. It was tasty and I was happy to eat a lot of vegetables after a fairly unhealthy diet so far on tour!

In the afternoon, I convinced Domingos to brave the cold with me to check out the Chicago Athenaeum International Sculpture Park, which was only a few miles away from our hotel. There was a lovely walking path with a very wide range of sculptures along the way.

After enjoying the outdoor art, Domingos left with the band for a run-out concert in DeKalb, and I chose to have a restful night at the hotel.
