Ben and I spent this weekend just outside Chicago and while most of it was spent cooped up in a hotel (me training and him studying), we did venture into the city after everything wrapped up on Monday. I visited Navy Pier in November but this was my first time in the summer and Ben’s first Chicago experience. Yes, its a little touristy, but on a 75 degree day with blue skies and billowing clouds, you can’t pass up a beautiful windy view of the water.
We spent a few hours just wandering the pier, eating very expensive ice-cream (its practially robbery, I’m telling you), and dancing as the 90s band played cover after cover. Next time we’re in Chicago we’ll be a little less touristy, unless its another beautiful day, and then you can bet we’ll be right back at the waters edge.

^Whenever I get Haagen-Dazs I get something with caramel – yum 🙂
^Its hard to guess we’re just outside a bustling city.
Inside Navy Pier they have a neat stained glass museum and I couldn’t get over the beauty of this Tiffany window ^^^
^^A band in here played old favorites while we listened in from the pier
^I have an irrational fear of birds. The beady eyes and the sharp beaks make me shudder.
