Chicago Recap - Part 3

After breakfast at Eggsperience, we headed down to Navy Pier to do some more sight seeing.  It was kind of a gray day, but it was nice to have a break from the hot sun while we were outside.

After Navy Pier, we hopped on a water taxi and went down to Michigan Avenue, where we got off and walked to Millennium Park.  We stopped to see the Bean, of course, and then paid a visit to the funny fountains that have faces on them.  If you haven't seen these and you're in Chicago... you have to go see them!

We headed back to the hotel and showered, and then met up with Chris and Jess again, added my cousin and uncle to our group, and took a trip our to Allstate Arena to watch my cousin play against the Sky.

Not a great game, but always fun to go cheer Kris on!  After the game, we met Kris for dinner and then decided that we were tired, and that all the walking had caught up with us, so we went back to the hotel.

On Monday morning, we didn't have much time before we headed for the train, but wanted to get a couple things in.  We got on the Brown Line and went to the Sears Tower.  I know it's not called that anymore, but that's all I'll ever call it.  J and I didn't really care to go up to the observatory deck, so we found a nice little bench and sat and relaxed.  The line was an hour and a half, so Wade and Katie decided not to wait and we hopped back on the train so we could grab some pizza before we had to go.  We went to Pizzeria Due and had an amazing Chicago pizza!  Small personal note... I liked Pizzeria Due much better than Gino's East (that's my own personal opinion, I have no affiliation with either restaurant).

We headed back to Millennium Park where we caught our train and Wade and Katie headed back to the park to hang out for a couple of hours.

It was an AMAZING trip, and Katie and I decided that next time, we would meet up in New Orleans!
