Chicago

Ohhhh Chicago...How we loved you.


Millennium Park at the famous bean!


 Our reflection in the bean:

The Magnificent Mile...And magnificent it was! Every possible store you can think of was there. I personally enjoyed Crate & Barrel, Lush, and the Apple store.


Garrett's Popcorn:

On Lake Michigan with the Navy Pier in the distance:

Deep dish pizza from Lou Malnati's Pizzeria:

Day 2 we took a water taxi to the Sears Tower (now called Willis Tower):



Willis Tower:

 Stunning views at the top:



The tower had sky-decks at the 103rd floor. Scary, but looks really neat in pics :) Joe was in the sky-deck over and snapped this one with his phone:

And this one is for you Susan :)
Soldier Field -- Da Bears

We really enjoyed Chicago! It reminded us very much of NYC. Which is a good thing because we love that city! The weather is a little weird -- it would be extremely hot in the city but very cool and windy near the lake. We now know why it's called the windy city! :)

 All in all: Great city, great food, great shopping, and great sites!
