Tourists

Over the holiday weekend, Wes and I decided we should act like tourists. We packed a little suitcase, grabbed comfy walking shoes, hats and sunscreen and away we went... We started our day by visiting the church we were married in! Followed by the best brunch ever at Tre Kronor where we devoured the cinnamon rolls and other tasty Swedish morsels. On the train next; found our great deal hotel on Priceline, then walked to Navy Pier where we boarded the Sea Dog for an architectural tour via river. Hours later, it was the Chicago Jazz Fest! Exhausted by now, we happily sunk our tired bodies into a heavenly downtown bed. The next morning, we walked to the Museum Campus, and enjoyed the Adler Planetarium. I loved seeing all art globes on the walk there...especially "The Scream" interpretation. (For those of you not familiar with the art globes, it is similar to the past "Cows on Parade" outdoor art show a few years back.) More walking, boarding the train back to meet family for pizza at Gulliver's. We just loved our time as Chicago tourists!!
