A Little Chicago

Long time no blog!
I'm back, I hope for a good while this time.
This was going to be a crafty post but a big black
storm rolled in with lightening super close and
thunder super loud!
So...not a good day for taking pictures : (

Here's a little bit of Chicago for you...

Our son came in for a visit in June.
He and I had one day to fill on our own.
We decided to take the train downtown
Sooo much fun!!!

Here we are on top of the bus!
The tour guides are always funny
and you always learn some new
Chicago fact every tour.
I've taken it twice and highly recommend it!

This is heading into the financial district.
Did you know that more money is
traded here than in New York!?!

This is the Bean in Millennium Park.
It really is impressive and so shiny!

Sorry for the unedited photos.
Gotta get back into the swing of things.

Not  a whole lot else happening.
Still waiting and waiting for
Toll Brother's to start building
our townhouse, ugh!

I will be back, Monday,
with another post!
Go me!

Thanks for hanging in there with me!

Have a great weekend!!!

Good-good-good to hear from you and see your smiling face! Awesome skyscrapers! At least, you got some one-on-one with your son! He is quite handsome and has a nice smile.
Thanks for the mini-tour.
Look forward to hearing more.
Wish we got some rain!

I watched "The Break Up" last night/early morning and the movie takes place in Chicago and Vince Vaughn owns a double decker tour bus! My brother and sister-in-law lived in Chicago for five years or so and I never visited. I could kick myself for not going! Thanks for sharing a few of your pictures! I hope we both can stay blogging! It's fun but also a bit of work!
Stay cool!
