Remember how I was procrastinating packing for the Chicago trip? Well, about 10:00 pm decided it really was time to pack, not that packing for two days is a big deal. I can count on a couple fingers the number of times my electricity has gone out in the 17 years I've lived here. Yup, you guessed it. Didn't want to pack by flashlight but decide to straighten up the hooking room . . . lol.
It was just a quick trip to visit family in Chicago so grandson Jake could spend some time with his cousins. Here are a few of the highlights.
The Chicago Cultural Center, a former library. Just breathtaking.
What would a trip to Chicago be without a trip to Cloud Gate at Millennium Park, aka the Bean?
I love the reflection of the city on the Bean.
This is too funny. Nephew-in-law Michael and DSO Fritz looked like twins.
Jake with his (2nd?) cousins Alexis and Sophia. He does love his cousins :)
The flowers throughout the city are just gorgeous. This is the only picture I thought to take. (Sorry, if I enlarge it is blurry.)
There was so much more I wanted to do, but we only had one full day there. Hopefully next time.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
