Chicago

Last week Curt needed to go to Chicago for work, so Des and I tagged along.


Let's start with our hotel room.
It was great...look at the beautiful view...


...this building was my favorite to look at, the Trump International Hotel and Tower


Our room had good art in it, photographs from around the city.



...even the bathroom had a picture of the bean in it.


We ate a lot of good food and had fun walking around the city.
Yes, if you are wondering, the following is a Marilyn Monroe figure that is several times taller than a city bus.


This is a restaurant that we ate breakfast from every morning..very yummy, fluffy, fabulous french toast.



I love that the river plays such a large part of this city...a little smelly, but very picturesque.




love the details on so many of the buildings...so pretty.




 ...And then the huge park(s)...




Just lovely.

While Curt was at work the first day I went to the Field Museum.  Totally awesome. 
But lugging my hefty {cute} baby around all day for miles and miles did a number on my knee.
{Yes, I know, next time I will plan better and have the stroller}
I recovered, but it did inhibit my exploring for the rest of the trip.

Overall, Chicago was fun and I'm glad to have gone there and get a feel for it.
