Chicago 2012 – Day Two, part two & Day Three
in honor of memorial day this year, i decided to post this last post of our trip to chicago….from last year.
yup. i just did that. haha.
*if you’d like to catch up on the rest of our trip you can click here and here.
without further ado..i mean you have been waiting a whole year….
this is the northside view from the signature lounge of the hancock building.
i can’t remember which side this is. i think it’s the westside.
and from the inside of the women’s bathroom. yup! the women’s bathroom has a spectacular view!!! (the men’s has no view.)
taking a breather and getting some drinks in the observertory.
along the park line we saw a bunch of people playing chess.
then we found out that there are chess boards built into the structure where we saw people playing. how cool is that!?!
from the hancock building we walked to the lincoln park zoo. and just before walking into the zoo i took this shot of the skyline.
at the zoo we saw many, many animals. this guy was just chillin’, takin’ a nap while people were watching him.
i think this is a red fox.
this guy walked back and forth between his two areas. he was fun.
oh, this awesome giraffe!!!
haha..and these piranha’s were attacking the lettuce. i thought it was hilarious so i took a shot of it.
once we were done with the zoo we started walking back to b & d’s place. i saw this sign and was sorta amazed by it. i’ve never lived in a place where it snows so much that there’s a sign like this. even here, in the o-hi-o.
we were getting hungry on the walk home so we stopped in at this cute little place that made crepes.
i got a savory one with chicken and sun-dried tomatoes and paul got a dessert one with lemon and whip cream. both were de.lish.ous!
**oops…this was from friday night. b had made this dessert earlier in the week. yum!
on sunday we biked to navy pier and walked around just for a few minutes.
then we went back to b & d’s place and cleaned up. and we played with their kitties, twiggy and chuppa.
paul had a fun time playing with twiggy.
while i had fun playing with chuppa. he was deathly annoyed by this thing. so of course i would be the one to mess with him. haha!
so there you have it. finally the rest of our (first?) trip to chicago. we had a great time and will hopefully return one day. thanks, b & d for hosting us and showing us around. what do you think we’re doing this year? what did you do last year? is it the same as this year? well, whatever it is that you do get out to do, i hope you have a great time doing it!
