A Weekend in The Windy City..


I am back from my whirlwind trip to Chicago! Andy and I had a blast. We visited Millennium Park, Navy Pier, Willis (formerly known as Sears) Tower, Magnificent Mile, celebrated my 22nd birthday on Saturday, walked along the river, tried deep dish pizza (Andy did anyways) cruised the river on an architectural tour, and went to the Harry Potter exhibition (I know, I know, I'm 22). I fell in love with this city and can't wait to go back someday!

My favorite things were the bean, the ledge on Willis Tower, and just walking around the city. I am already dreaming of another trip there to explore more of the city. Thanks for all of your tips and suggestions, they were extremely helpful!

Whoa, this looks too cool! My friend visited and said she loved Chicago!

PS Pride & Prejudice = one of the best books ever! So cliche, but it is the best Jane Austen =)

My sister took her little guys to the Willis Tower (they are 4,3 and 8 months) and they stated they went out on the jettisons.
I remember the weekend they went out and people either liked them or not.

Glad you had a good time.
You came at a good time because of the Air and water show. And the weather was very Summery.
