Sight Seeing: Chicago
I love Chicago, have probably been there about 10 times in the past several years and Michael and I spent our 20th wedding anniversary there.
At some point during the day as I was planning the trip I remembered that when I was a little girl I used to pretend that I was a "tour guide" on our airstream camp outs.
This trip, since there were only 3 of us, and the other two are sports nuts I kept that in mind when I planned the intinerary.
United Center- this was all about seeing the Michael Jordan statue
Millenium Park- fountain and ampitheater (Chicago Children's Choir- free concert in the park)
The Bean- Millenium Park (my favorite piece of contemporary art)
Deep Dish @ Giordano's (bonus points for a tornado warning)
Walk to the River
Taxi to the Navy Pier (Tyler's first taxi ride)
