this past weekend i went to downtown chicago with ed, my son dave, my sis cindy, brother in law bud, niece candi and her fiance’ jared, my sis julie, brother in law tony and niece danielle. here’s a little glimpse into my chicago weekend memories. it was a great chance to practice using my camera!
above photo: the least favorite part of my weekend was being on the 33rd floor of the Hyatt Regency Hotel. i’m not a fan of staying in a room that far up. i would prefer my exit choice to be closer to the ground. however it did provide me great shots like this one. can you believe this was taken from behind a window 33 stories up? pretty darn good camera i would say! and by the way, this is north wacker street – the street in batman the dark knight. this exact intersection and bridge. cool!
above photo: this photo was also taken from behind a window 33 stories up. i used my zoom. this is navy pier in the winter. well 1/2 of it. the other 1/2 is behind that building.
above photo: my niece danielle. us girls took a little break in the lobby chatting and snacking while the guys took a walk around in the blowing snow storm. we didn’t want to totally ruin our hair for our special evening out.
above photo: what can i say? giordano’s pizza – gotta have it when we go to chicago!
above photo: this is what i got from dave when i asked him to smile for the camera! thanks dave!
above photo: my niece candi and her fiance’ jared. they are so darn cute together and they are FUN! love them!
above photo: besides hanging out and being with my family, i have to say this was the highlight of my weekend. i could see this amazing musical over and over and over. in fact this was the 3rd time i’ve seen it. and yes, i still cried in the same places this time just like the other 2 times! hands down my favorite musical ever!
above photo: a great local restaurant that candi recommended. thanks can! it was so fun, unique, diverse and one of dave and my favorite parts of the weekend!
above photo: totally cool orange juicer machine at the restaurant. really really cool machine!
above photo: and because i love fun little things and because i am a scrapbooker and a lover of pictures, i had to take a shot of the fun silverware. totally going to do this at home sometime for a sit down dinner!
above photo: dave with his special flavor of juice at “Orange”. you could order your own combo of juices.
above photo: and last but not least is my favorite photo of dave from the weekend. love his curls! he’s so handsome. he’s so grown up. he’s so content with his choices as a young college man. so lovin’ this picture of him right now!
yes, i realize i’m showing no pictures of myself. let’s just say i am super picky with pictures of me. i’ll blame it on bad lighting, and snow storm hair. yeah, that’s it! 🙂
