The Windy City

For vacation this year, Dad & Darlene took us to Chicago for a few days.  Dylan and I had never been before and were a little skeptical of what it had to offer.  Boy, were we surprised by how much we loved it!  We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott and couldn't have been more pleased by it's location or amenities.

Arriving in Chicago

After checking into our hotel we headed down to check out Navy Pier.  It was absolutely beautiful and perfect weather for a walk on the pier.  We grabbed lunch and I had my first official Chicago hot dog!

It was such a beautiful view!





Beautiful riverwalk!






The Bean!


For dinner our first night we went to Gino's to try some Chicago pizza.  The food was amazing and the atmosphere was awesome!





The next day the boys decided to head to the Museum of Science and Industry and we had breakfast and then shopped on Magnificent Mile :)



Yummy breakfast from Corner Bakery Café...




Shopping in Chicago was amazing, I loved getting to visit all my favorite stores :)  The boys had a blast at the museum too!

For dinner that night we decided to go back to Navy Pier so that we could enjoy the fireworks.  We picked Bubba Gump Shrimp.  Dylan and I had been to the one in Daytona Beach, FL before and loved it so we were excited to give the Chicago location a try.  It was so good!  I'm normally not a big chain restaurant person but this is one I love to visit.



Look who Dyl found outside :)





On our last day we decided to go see Wrigley Field!  It was so awesome getting to see such an iconic place in Chicago!





Beautiful drive on the way home....huge windmills everywhere!
