We took the amtrak train to Chicago for a little adults only weekend. We had a great time talking, walking, laughing and eating. Kim is the best traveling companion, even 8 months pregnant. We were having such a great time that we took ZERO pictures, so all of these are pilfered from the internet.
Took a brief walk on the beach. Chilly.
Nice used book store, picked up some 1950's kids books for the girls.

Kim loves Anthropologie, so she found a little heaven here.


We ate dinner at this great little Irish pub. Good fish and chips!

We didn't want a full on boat tour, so we took a $4 water taxi ride and got to see the city from the water.
Kim has never been to Wrigleyville, so we took the red line up there to walk around. The game had just gotten out, so she said it felt a little like Mardi Gras. When your team is terrible for 1oo years, you have to make it a party or it's just no fun.

We did a little shopping for the girls at the Gap on Michigan Avenue.

We stayed at the Tremont Hotel, right by Water Tower Place at Michigan Avenue and Chestnut.
