Outdoor Wednesday- Chicago Style!

We arrived in Chicago on Friday a.m., and by night time -we'd had a tour of Michigan Avenue. In the evening we went to the House of Blues for dinner, then walked around a bit. The photos were all taken by me, as we enjoyed the life in the big city. This was 2 weeks ago, in time for DD# 2 (not 3) to run the Marathon.

I hope you enjoyed the tour of our first night in Chicago! There will be more later, as I share with you the experience of the Chicago Marathon from a spectator's seat! Be sure and check out my giveaway posted on my side bar!

Thanks to everyone for sharing another outdoor Wednesday with me. Join me as I return to to see more.

  13. Looks like so much fun! I went to Chicago, for a Mother's Day gift, with my daughters and granddaughters a little over 4 years ago. We stayed on Michigan Avenue and truly enjoyed walking to different things; plus thoroughly enjoyed the taxi rides!!

  15. What a special weekend with the girls!
    I love visiting Chicago. The last time I was there, DH was in meetings the whole time, so I had hours and hours to explore. We stayed at the Fairmont...within walking distance or a short cab ride of so much. I think I walked 20 miles that week!Camera in hand, I tried to capture the architecture throughout the city.
