Midwest Road Trip!

Well, I’m not traveling to some far off, exotic place at the moment, but I am in Chicago, which is quite nice!  Paul and I are in the Midwest for a long weekend to attend our friends, Rinn and Peter, wedding in Dekalb, IL.   Before the wedding we’re visiting some friends in Chicago and after the wedding we’ll head to Platteville, WI to visit Paul’s mom.  

Paul’s roommate from college, Wes, and his partner Patrick live near Wrigley field in Chicago and we got to spend Friday and Saturday morning with them.  Luckily the rain broke for the majority of the afternoon so we were able to explore a bit of downtown Chicago.  Of course we had to go to Millennium Park and see the famous Bean!

It looks like the spaceship from the “Flight of the Navigator” landed in the middle of Chicago and we are all just waiting for the weird mercury like stairs to form and the cute boy to come out. 
We also visited the Hershey’s store!  Yum!  Five pound Hershey bars…what a great place.  And then took a trip to the Signature lounge on the 96th floor of the Hancock Building to have a cocktail overlooking the city.
