Windy City

Chris and I spent a fun-filled weekend in Chicago. She had business there making it a great opportunity for the two of us to take a vacation. We left the kids at home in the able hands of Grammy & Pops and aunts Kathy & Carol.

Chris had meetings on Friday so I spent the entire day down at the Museum of Science and Industry.
It's a nerd's paradise but it'd be great with the kids too.
I was most impressed by the German U-505 Submarine displayed there.

Friday evening we enjoyed some deep-dish pie at Pizzaria Due. Yum! While I usually prefer the thinner New York style pizza, I must say this stuff was delicious.

We started Saturday morning by riding the 'L' around the loop three times on an architectural tour. In the afternoon we caught a matinee of Wicked, a very entertianing musical telling the untold story of the witches of Oz. After the show we walked over to the Sears Tower where we rode the elevator 1,353 feet above the city for a fantastic view of Chicago (and beyond).
