Chicago

Went to St. Charles for training last week. It's only about 45 minutes outside of Chicago, so Stephanie and I stuck around for an extra day to check out downtown. After our training ended about noon last Friday, we headed into Chicago. We took the train into the city and spent the rest of the day shopping on Michigan Avenue. Dinner at Edwardo's was pretty delicious (deep dish spinach pizza), especially since we used up most of our time shopping and it was late by the time we made it to dinner.

We went back into the city on Saturday for the Chicago Architecture Foundation's river cruise.

We had lunch at the Weber Grill Restaurant before heading back to the airport for home. It was somewhat of a novelty since we'd never seen one before.

I had fun tooling around Chi-Town with Stephanie. Greg was a little envious, but we'll go together some other time!

  1. That picture of you with your flippy floppies turned out really cute. I credit myself.
