Travel Tuesdays - Chicago May '09 edition

Have you gathered by now that we really like Chicago?

It also helps that we have family there so there's a good excuse to visit a lot.

Mother's Day weekend found us in Chicago to spend time with family.

We ate at one of our favorite breakfast spots, Clark's



walked along the water

hung out with family (and I really wish I had more pictures of that part of the trip but unfortunately I don't)

went to Navy Pier


enjoyed blooming, heavenly scented things


rode a water taxi



walked around the city



saw this statue


rode in a taxi

and ate well (not just breakfast places although that seems to be when I was taking photos)


(they give the ladies milk duds)


Do you have any trips planned? Where are you going next?

Actually tomorrow I am going to Warren, PA for work, but in June I am going to South Dakota to walk in a Volksmarch up on the Crazy Horse Memorial mountain.

I think my next trip will be Chicago or Dallas. Either place will be wonderful because I will be visiting my children.

Oh Chicago!! I love Louisville, but I really do miss the windy city. The food, the arts, the summer festivals... there's just something special about that place.

So glad you guys had a great time... And neat that you have family there, it definately makes the trip all the more special.
