Bean Boys


bean_boysHave you ever been to “the Bean” in Chicago?  Officially titled “Cloud Gate”, it’s an incredible work of art that has doubtless inspired hundreds of thousands of photos.  We’ve taken a few there ourselves, but this photo of my nephews Tyler and Evan, taken on Saturday, is arguably one of the most creative I’ve seen!  Makes me want to take a field trip to The Windy City!

  1. Kim recently experienced the Bean for the first time as part of a Levity Project

    Imagine a hundred people standing underneath the bean looking up at the shiny surface and laughing. She said it was quite the experience. (I was home with Lucy so I’m looking forward to seeing the video clip when they release it.)
