A Windy Day in Chitown


Spur of the moment, at the end of last week, I decided to head into Chicago for a few days with these two darling girls who are home in Cincy for the summer. I have a few fun stories and lots more pictures to share but here are a few from our first few hours in the city. We left warm and sunny Cincinnati for a bitter cold wind in Chicago but we loved (almost) every second of it. We walked so much our feet hurt and almost died once or twice biking through Chicago traffic šŸ˜‰

^Emily-Jane and Morgan (both are photographers: Emily took our anniversary pictures last year and Morgan did a lot of photography for me before heading off to school in January)

^Windy was an understatement

^the water was so blue we just wanted to go swimming…if only it had been more than 55 degrees

  1. I went to Chicago just last weekend and spent some time at the Shedd Aquarium (which I caught a glimpse of in the background). Such cute photos.

  2. Looks like so much fun, Elisabeth! The water is beautiful even though it was so chilly out!


  3. I love all of the beautiful pictures. I am now even MORE excited to be moving near Chicago next year. I hope my trips there next year are just as fun as your girls' trip looks! šŸ™‚
