windy, indeed

Sorry for the lack of posting lately… Nick and I took a somewhat last-minute trip to Chicago last week! We found a great deal and decided to keep up with our annual May excursions (last year we went to Boston for a game at Fenway and to see the city; the year before that, we visited my relatives in New Orleans and went to JazzFest). Overall, we had a great time in the Windy City! Here are a few highlights:

Deep dish pizza (at both Gino’s East, shown below, and Lou Malnati’s, our favorite of the two)…
Spending time with an old friend…Gorgeous tulips all over the city…
A Cubs game at Wrigley Field…
Seeing some amazing works of art at the Art Institute of Chicago
Fun with the bean…
A cool exhibit of works inspired by or designed for the Obama 2008 Presidential Campaign…
Yummy food and good company (with two Chicago bees) at Carnivale
A clear day’s view from the 99th floor of the Sears Tower…
And fun with the fun house mirrors at Navy Pier.
I’m glad to be able to check #93 off my list! #94 will have to wait as Oprah was finished taping her season by the time we got into town, but that will just give me another excuse to get back to the Windy City another time soon.
