the windy city

A couple of weeks ago we received some horrible news that a family member had passed away. We knew we had to be there so we were Chicago bound. 

After more than a few difficult days we decided to head into the city and take our minds of things. I snapped these shots. We hope to go back later in the Summer and explore more of Chicago. The last and only time I had been in Chicago before was in the winter. While it was fun to see the city in the cold weather, summertime in Chicago is such a change. We can't wait to go back!

I told Ry that I wanted to go on the Ferris wheel, he was less than thrilled with this idea. I had no idea until this day that he was afraid of heights. I loved being able to see Chicago so well. 

Ry-guy's brother lives in Chicago and took us out to dinner at Portillo's. OH.M.GEE I don't think I've ever had better food in my life. I at the Chicago style hot dog, and Ry had some time of beef sandwich. I can't wait to go back to eat there again!

  3. Sorry you had to go down there for not so fun reasons :( But nothing beats Chicago in the summer. So so fun. And Portillo's. so good. I must stop there every time we go.


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to read about Dexter Morgan and his adventures.
