Drew and I spent this past weekend in a city we absolutely LOVE……Chicago!!! Our beautiful little girl got to spend the weekend with her grandma and grandpa D (with special visitors: aunt Rachel, aunt Laura, Amanda and Tommy). I feel so blessed to have such wonderful, loving parents and sisters!!
We decided to go to Chicago and catch the Chicago Bears vs. Philadelphia Eagles football game (since Drew is a HUGE Eagles fan) and to have some much appreciated “mom and dad” time. Needless to say we had a wonderful weekend of site seeing, good food and a very exciting football game! Here are some pictures from our trip!!!!!!
On the train from O’Hare airport to our hotel
We decided after lunch to head down to Michigan Ave and stroll the shopping district. Once we got down there, we realized Michigan Ave was being set up for a parade taking place later that night, so it was VERY busy and crowded. We went into a few stores, but then decided we were going to head over to the art institute instead.
This is that famous guy that moves like a robot and acts like a statue – he’s really good!
Outside the Art Institute of Chicago
After a busy day of site seeing, we had a nice dinner at Rockit Bar and Grill. It was a great atmosphere and the food was AWESOME!
Then we went back to the hotel to get warm and comfy and catch some zzzzzzzzs
Sunday morning we got up and headed to Millenium Park to walk around and take some pictures
I like how it reflects downtown Chicago
Around 5:30PM, we headed to Soldier Field for the football game. It was a little nerve wracking to be surrounded by Bears fans and cheer for the Eagles though 🙂 It was a great game and the Eagles beat da’ Bears 24-20 woohoo!!!
Monday morning we got up really early to head home. We had a great time in Chicago, but couldn’t wait to get home and kiss and hug Jensen!
