CHI-town

Last Thursday Wesley and I made a trip to Chicago with Lauren and Ryals.

We were making fun of the boys for both bringing a manilla folder with our tickets/info for the trip.
Once we got there we dropped our bags at the hotel and went out for a scenic stroll. The boys got a nice view...
I couldnt get over the "beach". If only Atlanta had a beach all of my dreams would come true!
We walked on down to check out Navy Pier, pretty cool tourist trap I must say

Thursday night we went to dinner at Topo Gigio and then went to Second City Comedy Club
Second City is famous for producing a ton of SNL comedians, and it was hilarious!
After the show, we went to the top of the Wit Hotel to have a drink. The rooftop bar was right up my alley.
Wrigley Field was the first stop on Friday

We were ready to cheer on the Cubs
After the game, we rushed to get ready to make our 6pm Cocktail Architectural Boat Tour.
This was AMAZING! The boat went up through the river and out onto the lake. It was a fabulous way to see the city and learn about all of the beautiful buildings.

One of our favorite buildings...the Trump Tower

Saturday morning, Wesley and I went for a walk and found The Bean!

We wanted to get some shopping in so we headed to Armitage Avenue.
It was pouring outside, so we got some bags from BCBG to cover our heads and shop hopped!
Once it cleared up the Chicago Water & Air Show started and the boys took off to see what it was all about.

After seeing the planes fly by, Lauren and I couldnt resist we had to check it out too. It was so cool; I was amazed at the tricks.
That night we went to the Signature Room at the John Hancock for some pre-dinner drinks.
Here is the view from the top, look close and you can see the beach
We had dinner at Gibsons, which included a huge bowl of strawberry shortcake for dessert.


Before we left Sunday we went to the Lincoln Park Zoo.
This cat came right up to the window
and these monkeys made us cry we were laughing so hard
And before we caught our flight back home we had to get some chicago pizza.
What a great trip with great friends!
