Brent is going to Chicago next week, booooo! I'm trying to figure out how I can sneak on the company plane :)

He had a business trip to Chicago back in the Spring of 2004. It was 1 meeting, a fly in fly out type of meeting but we decided to make a weekend out of it & I got to tag along. We flew in on a Saturday, had all day Sunday to do as much as we could, Brent's meeting Monday morning & then flew out that afternoon. Fast, yes, but so much fun.

Wish I had taken a picture of us going through the process of taking the train in, the hotel was in downtown Chicago, from the airport. We had no idea what we were doing but some how we ended up exactly where we needed to be :)

The ESPN Zone. We just went in and looked around. I think it's closed down now.

Walked around Navy Pier.

We both thought this statue was a real man fishing. From a distance it looked real :)

Dashed in & out of museums. Andy Warhol's Mao was displayed at the Art Museum. Very cool.

Soldier Field. Just a drive by.

There was a Greek restaurant next to our hotel so we thought why not. Try something new. People were ordering some kind of flaming cheese stuff so we thought we would partake. The waiters brought it out flaming & when they put it out they yelled OPA!!! very loudly. Fun! Neither one of us liked the cheese, but the our dinner was oh so yummy.

Our quick Chicago trip was one of our favorite trips we have taken together. I want to go back when there is more time to really enjoy the city without being rushed.
