We rode the "L" to the museum area and walked along the lake to Navy Pier. The Chicago River looked nice. Well, except for that big TRUMP building staring at me. Ugh.
Proof I made it to the Navy Pier!
I have yet to ride the new Ferris wheel, mainly because it was kind of dreary out. Maybe another time.
The Tall Ships were visiting the Navy Pier, so we decided to check them out.
I love taking pictures of the masts!
Thought this was a cool perspective.
Hubby and me!!
This ship came from Norway!
After all the ship viewing (we actually got to get onto the ships and check them out), we ate dinner at Giordano's. I've been there a couple of times, but this was the first time I actually got the Chicago style stuffed pizza (ours was stuffed with cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, and onions). Oh. My. God. I think that was the best pizza I've ever eaten! Will definitely have to go back. Maybe the one in Indianapolis (since it's the closest!).
And of course, a trip to Chicago means a trip to Racine and the O&H Danish Bakery. We bought TWENTY Kringles. Yep. 20. They're nicely packed in our freezer.
Actually, they're stuffed in there!
All in all it was a wonderful weekend. It had been too long since our last getaway.
So... Did you do anything fun this past weekend?
Have a great Monday!
