We recently spent a weekend hosting our dear friends, Dave and Denise, from Indianapolis. Scott and Dave were high school friends. Dave stood up for Scott at our wedding, and Scott sang at their wedding. We were all married in 1978, they in June, and Scott and I in September. Still going strong!
|Scott and Dave - the hombres!|
|Denise and myself. We were about to head into Chicago for a day full of sightseeing and fun activities - and eating and drinking, of course! I told them to wear comfortable shoes! We had breakfast at home, and then we headed out!|
|Here you see one of the amazing fountains in the park. There are multiple images projected from inside the fountain, and the images move, too! There is a splash pool down below - very popular on warm Chicago days.|
This is "the bean" - not my photo, but you get the idea - this is huge!
|You can see all of the Tiffany glass work on the wall and ceilings everywhere in this ballroom! There were setting up for an event. This is one of the most sought-after locations for weddings in Chicago.|
|After a stop for a snack, we headed to Chicago Distilling Company. We got to see how they create spirits, like gin and bourbon, and they gave out samples! We each tried one of their cocktail creations, too.|
|We finished the day with dinner at my favorite spot, Tre Kronor, in the Albany Park neighborhood of Chicago. Chicago is a city of neighborhoods - over 200, I think - and we drove through lots of them on our little tour of the city. Cheers to old friends!|
