We're home from our whirlwind trip to Chicago, about a 600 mile round trip. We left Tuesday morning and got home late this afternoon. It's an annual affair taking my grandson Jake to visit his cousins Sophia and Alexis.
Some random pictures in no particular order.
This picture was taken about 3 miles north of the city.
Being the redhead that he is, Jake does not tan so that is him looking all pale and white :)
My niece drove us to the area called the north loop (I think) to see her hubby's office and have lunch. Sophia, DSO and I decided to take the El (elevated train) back to my niece's. On the walk to the station, we wandered in to Union Station Railroad Station which opened in 1925. What a gorgeous edifice. They sure don't build them like this any longer. This American flag greeted us as we entered.
We walked past Willis Tower (aka the Big Willy).
DSO waiting . . .
. . . and here it is. A great way to catch glimpses of the city.
Cousins. Age wise, Jake is between the two girls.
Saturday I have an applique class with Rebekah L. Smith. Just what I need . . . another project and this is a big one (at least for me).
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
