Scenes around Chicago

Here are a few more pics of Chicago. This was some of my favorite places to visit when I'm there.

This is the Navy Pier. It is a lot more fun in the summer when they have more outdoor things to do. It has a lot of specialty shops and unique restaurants. It is a great place to go to get a Chicago souvenir. It also has a very large ferris wheel and I thought I got a pic but did not. The all famous Hard Rock. I have eaten here but it was at least 5+ years ago.
This is a really cool McD's. It is 2 stories and has a oldies theme inside.
They have really good hot chocolate on a cold day.
The famous clock that my family stands in front of to get a pic.
This was inside the Navy Pier. This is the first time I have seen the Thomas the train there. It was 2.00 a ride and it lasted about 5 minutes. I should have brought a book because he stayed on there for a very long time.
All the times I have been to Chicago, I have never eaten here. But we had to take a pic cause of my little Pork Chop. Has anyone been here? Let me know if it was any good.
This is the famous Billy Goat's. It was always on Saturday Night Live because of their slogan. If you ask for fries with your burger they say "no fries, only chips".
I finally took a picture of Coltan.....Thanks Coltan. I wished I took more of him but he was never with me. He was shopping on Michigan Ave with my mom where it was a lot colder.
My two sweet boys. (Sorry Cody, you were playing soccer instead of shopping)

Thanks for taking the time to walk through our fun trip to Chicago. It is a fun place that we always enjoy going to. Hopefully next time I go, I have all 3 boys, and Carson has outgrown all of his problems. No tubes, no monitors, no oxygen......

Love your new border. Looks like you guys had fun in Chicago. My pen-pal from Germany visited me (many years ago now) and we went downtown on a bitingly cold day. I ended up with bronchitis (sp?). It can get SO blustery down there.

What a fun trip! I have only been to Chicago in the airport on a layover. One day will have to stay a bit longer. I too hope that next time Carson will have received a miracle of healing. There's that great smile, though, that will be there no matter what. He's such a cutie!

What a fun trip! I can see how Carson would love that train :). My guys would have loved it too.

Oh my gosh, you are so lucky! I haven't been to Chicago in forever and Ryan's never been. That is on the list of places we want to go sometime soon. Looks like you all had a great time.

P.S. I heart Kirklands. There is one just down from my house and it's dangerous. :)
