Creating family balance can be challenging in today’s world and it often leaves us feeling as if we don’t have much time to really invest in the quality things that we love. Creating experiences within our relationships is a valuable and powerful force. If you find yourself struggling with pressure of lacking time, try to focus less on quantity and more on quality.
As summer is quickly approaching an end, there are still many events and activities remaining in Chicago. One of our favorite things to do as a family is to attend the Jay Pritzker Pavilion summer concert series. There is nothing better than starting your week with a picnic in the park together as a family. Not only is there amazing music preformed with a stunning background view of the city, but it’s also free! In the midst of busy schedules, I have always found it to be so worthwhile to invest this time together as a family. So get out there and have some fun with these last remaining summer nights in Chicago! Here are a few remaining concerts presented by Millennium Park.
