Earlier this week, my sister and Tom and I headed to Chicago for a quick couple of days. The weather was . . . not great. But we had a great time . . . cramming as many activities into our hours in Chicago as we could.
There was deep dish pizza.
And a walk on Navy Pier.
There is a certain charm to seeing the city swamped in fog. Even though it does cut down on the views! (Usually, this vista from Navy Pier would feature the impressive Chicago skyline in the background. You'll just have to imagine it, though. Like we did.)
We visited The Bean between rainstorms. (It never fails to charm.) (The Bean. Not the rainstorms.)
The next day was a dry -- but cold! A great day to spend inside at the Art Institute.
And the weather cleared enough that we could take the Architectural Foundation River Cruise in the afternoon . . .
before hitting the Purple Pig for dinner.
And then . . .
which totally and absolutely lived up to its hype. (In the words of Ferris Bueller . . . "It is so choice.")
It was a great couple of days -- a regular Ferris Bueller kind of thing!
