Fun In Chicago

Friday I dropped the dog off at the kennel, and Kevin and I headed to Chicago.

We had a  hot  great time in the city.

Saturday morning we woke up early, and enjoyed a leisurely morning drinking coffee, and surfing the internet for things to do.

We found a car show to go to, so that was our first stop of the day. We enjoyed looking at cool cars, and we even met a celebrity there. Tucker, a yellow labrador, that does commercials and advertising. So cute!

I had my first shopping experience at Trader Joe's, and enjoyed looking at all the tasty things in that store.

Then we headed to Smoque for a BBQ lunch. We had seen Smoque on FoodTV, and knew we wanted to go there. It was pretty good, but not as good as Jim's in the Quad Cities.

We went back to the hotel and swam, rested, and then finished off the night with a stop to 5 Guys burgers.

Sunday we woke early and took the train into the city. We walked around and saw so much, we even enjoyed a Chicago hotdog. The day was so hot, 98 heat index. Whew! We went into Sears and walked around for awhile just to cool off.

We got off at the Damen stop (while on the train) and enjoyed walking around and exploring this neighborhood. There were neat shops we looked in and a nice park we rested at.

Time to get back to the park and ride.

Allison would be landing at O'Hare in less then 2 hours!
