One Thursday afternoon my husband surprised me with the announcement that we would be taking a day trip to Chicago, IL. I was bursting with excitement! That Friday evening we drove to the big city and stayed in a downtown hotel. On Saturday, the adventure began. Our visit included a trip to the Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier, John Hancock building, and Cloud Gate at Millennium Park. My husband estimated that by the end of the day we walked about 7 miles. Here are just a few of the pictures from our spontaneous trip to the wind city.
