This first collage covers Navy Pier, Millenium Park and the "Bean" - it was fascinating to me, Yolk - where we had an insane amount of ridiculously good breakfast food - hello Red Velvet French Toast, a view from Willis (Sears) Tower, Sprinkles Cupcakes - Chicago, the famous "Chicago" sign, and a photo op with the Michigan River in the background.
The next one is all from St. Patrick's Day...and in case you are wondering that short sleeve shirt I had on Friday, made a repeat performance halfway through the day on Saturday because of the
The people watching on SPD was off the charts...in some ways I imagine it is like Mardi Gras in Chicago. People dressed up, people dressed their pets up. Not really any pictures of the parade...we didn't make it there long. The amount of people there was truly stiffling and really so crowded that we couldn't see much anyway. The Michigan River turned green was a cool sight to see. It was amazing how green it actually was. Our goal for the day was to hit up five pubs or bars during the afternoon having a drink at each...we weren't driving people! Sometime during the afternon, it morphed into ten...but we rounded out the evening with eight. We closed out the evening at the very crowded hotel bar.
That is the condensed version of our whirlwind trip...I will probably post one more round of photos when I get the other disc. I think that Jennifer has some fun pictures from some places that we hit that Megan didn't have her camera for. All in all, it was a really fun trip. We all got to explore a new place and it was wonderful to catch up with friends that I don't get to see nearly enough of. Hope you enjoyed the photos...and now I am off to get some much need beauty sleep! Night!
