One more shout out to Chicago...

We went up the hancock building at 10:00 at night! Highly reccommend pun intended!! :)
We had a great weekend....oh yeah....I had to put one last pic in of my dad with my bear and blankie! He was making the bear talk....he was either really happy or really tired, we'll never know which...but trust me, he doesn't usually play with stuffed animals!!

And more Chicago...

More fun at fun to write on the walls, seats, tables....etc...

More Chicago

Just after we began walking the streets we were stopped by the biggest group of bicyclers we've ever seen! Apparently it was critical mass, which we weren't aware of!! Its an event that is world wide from what we gathered and people come out once a month on friday nites to represent rights for bikers?!?
After watching them go by, most in coustumes, we shopped around a bit at the Mac Store then headed to dinner at Gino's Pizza where you can write all over the walls....even on the mirror like my mom did!! They relocated from the orginal location downtown so the facility was only a year old if that, so there was alot of space to write on....and we took full advantage!!


Well, a couple weekends ago, we spent the weekend in the Chicago/Milwaukee area. We had alot of fun with my parents and lil bro Micah and his friend William (aka Willy to me!)

This was our first stop, Dennys on the south side of Chicago...yumm?!?!

Someone had a hard time reading the menu!!

Once we made it to Milwaukee, my dad and John went to the mitchell domes. They are unique to Milwaukee and nice to visit on a cole cloudy day like they took advantage of. The domes are very warm and beautiful with tons of tropical plants which my dad loves.

While Dad and John enjoyed the domes, the boys and my mom and I took full advantage of some great shopping in the area. Then we were back to Chicago to check into our hotel and head into downtown for the evening.
