A Day in the City



I took a day off of work this week, so that Tim and I could take a break from our respective school work and spend some time together. We decided to go into the city of Chicago for the day. We had such a great time together! We took the train in, so we could read and relax on the way in and then we wouldn't have to worry about parking. While we were waiting for the train, a parade went by. It was homecoming for our local high schools. So we got to enjoy a little taste of our local town before we went into the big city!

We visited the Art Institute and Millenium Park. We took the (EL) around "The Loop", which gave us a great view of the great architecture of the city. We stopped at a great local cafe for lunch and enjoyed hot flatbread sandwiches. We walked by the Lake side of the city and watched the boats float by. Really there is so much to see in the city, that we decided we would have to make it a goal of ours to make it in every month or two months, just to get the full experience of it.
