Time For a Road Trip

Posted by CheapRunnerRhoda

If you read yesterday's post you know that it was the 2 CRM's 13 year wedding anniversary. To celebrate they were taking the fam to Chicago. Because they are such great people and they feel really sorry for me, they invited me to come along... Ummm, let me think.... it was a tough decision to come to but they eventually twisted my arm!

They picked me up nice and early Friday morning and we made our way. We arrived around 2pm and headed straight for the Lincoln Park Zoo.


Lincoln Park Zoo

This was the best zoo I have ever been too, and... guess how much the admission was??

FREE!

We saw all sorts of animals and were able to get nice and close for some pics!

After the zoo, we headed to the hotel to get checked in. We stayed at The W and it was very nice!


The W Lakeshore Hotel

We enjoyed some really great food!


Can't Beat the Food in Chicago!
And some really great beverages!

Beers at Bubba's Navy Pier

Cheers Chicago

We did a lot of walking...


Walking off all that food!

And I think I was the designated photographer..

The buildings in Chicago are amazing. I wasn't very good at getting great shots of them but I managed to get a couple.

Trump Tower

Tribune Tower

It was a great weekend with the gang and I really appreciated them inviting me along!
