Between work, travel and preparing for our club agility trial I have been super busy.  Well, too busy to blog anyway.  But for our anniversary we took a short trip to chicago.  Other than road construction both ways we had a good time.  We ate.  A lot.  We went to the Taste of Chicago as it was going on while we were there and got to try lots of local foods.  All of which were good.  We also ate at some wonderful restauants as well as the Hershey store because, well, you can't NOT eat at the Hershey store. 

We explored some of the city parks and did some shoppping.  And lots of walking.  Lots. 

Apparently there are beaches in Chicago.  When we discovered this we made plans to make use of them.  The water is a little chilly, but the beach weather was perfect. 

We also went to the Museum of Science and Industry.  We were somewhat disappointed that is was more geared for kids, but it was ok. 

We also went to Navy Pier for shopping and fireworks and enjoyed an architecture tour cruise on the Chicago river.  We did not get to ride the ferris wheel as it was out of order.

But we did get to meet a former co-worker of mine and her husbnad for dinner and really enjoyed visiting with them and chatting about what life is like in the big city.  It's not for me, but it was a nice weekend.
