Chicago visit #1

Because, yes, there was a visit #2 in the same week.

This one was a day trip with friends. Two of my crazy friends from work. (They look crazy, don’t they?)

We’ll call them Easy and Peasy.

They were awesome travel companions, I must say. They talked the entire drive there (and back…and while we were traipsing all over the city) so the normal three-hour trip didn’t seem nearly that long. They were also open to anything I wanted to do – and they were excited about pretty much everything we did do.

Millennium Park never seems to get old to me. It’s awesome being right there in the city, but enjoying a nice stretch of greenery.

That, my friends, is Leonard Slatkin. Someone I know was VERY excited about that.

They never noticed when I did things like this.

I’ve never walked through the Lurie Gardens before. So nice!
