My lovely niece, Jessica, has come to Michigan for a quick visit. I have to share her with my Mom and Dad. . . but it's nice to have her here for a few days!
Brian and I decided that Jes needed to see Chicago. . . so the three of us took the train and headed out for 6 hours in the city!
Six hours in Chicago . . . is not much time at all. I had a list of highlights, but we didn't even come close! What DID we do?
"The Bean" (officially, Cloud Gate) in Millenium Park. . .
A quick walk down Michigan Avenue (no shopping, though; sadly, no time . . . ).
An introduction to the "rules" of Chicago hot dogs. . .
A spin around the Tribune Tower to discover the treasures of the world. . .
A moment to embrace the skyline. . .
And, of course, a taste of Chicago deep dish pizza!
We stopped to admire the river and the bridges. . .
and then hopped aboard the Chicago Architectural Foundation River Cruise!
And, with that. . . it was time to catch the train back to Kalamazoo! Time flies (especially when the pizza takes over an hour to to arrive at your table. . .), but what a fun afternoon!
