Chi.

Here's a little photo wrap-up of our time in Chicago...a week later.


Our first morning we walked through Oak Park from my aunt and uncle's house to the train station.  I love that place.  The houses are so pretty and it's so close to the city.    Also, I heart trains.  We spent most of the morning at the Art Institute.  Their newer modern wing is really beautiful.


Then we spent some time in Millennium Park.  It really doesn't get old.  And I love the way the rest of the city looks from it.


Just the three of us.  


Gabby met us downtown that afternoon and we did a little shopping.  yay.  And it felt a little like Christmas.  Then we met my aunt and uncle for dinner in Wicker Park at Crust for really yummy pizza.


I like Wicker Park.  Highly recommend stopping by these shops: Elevenzees (cutest collection of baby stuff), Renigade Handmade (reminded me so much of Reform School.  I wanted to buy so much that I bought nothing.), and Paper Doll (didn't actually get to go in, but it looked amazing).


The next rainy, cold morning we had brunch at Milk and Honey.  Really yummy.  And so fun. 


My aunt and uncle.  I really enjoy our family.  :)


A good-bye to Gabs, then off to IKEA (traumatic), and a nice late dinner date at Cafe Bolero in Bucktown that evening.  Then a drive through downtown to catch a glimpse of any lights.  And a nice visit with my cousin Ron and his girlfriend at a fun lounge.

And there you go.
