They're here!

Smother and Pops arrived in Chicago today for a little visit. We spent the whole day downtown eating hot dogs (of course) and seeing the sights.

Smother does not like sport peppers:

Dad enjoys his Chicago dog:
After our delicious lunch we headed over to Millennium Park to see the Bean.

We then strolled by the lake and over to see this huge fountain. I'm not sure what it's called, but you might remember it from the opening sequence of Married with Children.

After a short coffee/smoothie/orangina break, we started the trek over to Gino's East, which was well worth the mile and a half walk.

Dad and I stop to pose for a photo (the integrity of the bridge was questionable).

We then ate the best deep dish pizza ever. It was seriously so good.

And the fun has only just begun. Tomorrow, we head to Madison, Wisconsin for a few days. I am very excited about a little vacation and a chance to spend some quality time with my wonderful parents. Poor Nate has to stay home and learn things so he won't be able to join us, but we will try our best to have a good time in his absence.


  1. That Bean Girl sure gets around!

    And, let's do try this pizza joint over veggie infused Dogs when I visit. Lookin forward to it, thx! ;)

  2. Looks like a wonderful time was had by all! I hope Nathan gets a lot of reading done while he's on his own.
