Liquor and Lottery

I got hooked after the last one.

This particular sign happened to have some broken neon, which was interesting to draw. I am now on the lookout for my next sign, although the parking on the street and drawing it part is a little tricky with two kids in the back seat. For the bulk of this drawing, they had fallen asleep in the back. While they snoozed, I sat in the front, drawing and listening to the radio. It was a perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon.

Wait, skates!

The underside of one of Sean's new 4th birthday skates. These skates have proven to be so much fun, they are currently hidden in our storage space. I made the mistake of letting him skate on the hardwood floors inside the house the day he received these, and he hasn't stopped asking to do it again ever since. My fault, I know, for letting him do it to begin with.
We've bundled up and skated outside a few times, but at the risk of ruining our walls, floors, and furniture, the indoor skating has come to an end.

Over the wing

Seen on the return trip from Vancouver, back to Chicago. Every time I fly, I get a little choked up when we land and the pilot says "Welcome to Chicago." I'm a sap like that.
