Well, my mom and brother were in Chicago for four days. I took some pictures of their time here. Next week I’ll post pics on Steph’s visit, my birthday party, and Lollapalooza. That will be fun.
The first day we went on a brief (’cause if was freaking hot) walking tour of downtown Chicago. First stop, Buckingham Fountain.
Here’s a view of the fountain with my hotel in the background. (It’s the one dead center.)
We walked through Grant Park and I took a couple shots. This one ’cause I thought it was pretty–
And this one ’cause I think squirrels are adorable. I love their little hands.
We went to Millennium Park and I watched the kids (and adults) play in the fountains.
And of course I had to show them the bean.
Their last day here we went to the Museum of Science and Industry, where my favorite exhibit by far was the WWII German U-505 submarine. I like most anything that has to do with WWII. The sub was huge.
And I also liked the hatchery. Cute.
Stay tuned… more pictures next week!
