Field Trip: Chicago

A few weekends ago, the mister and I spent a few days in Chicago before heading out to Moline for the wedding of a dear friend.  I've had a long love affair with the windy city.  I have never lived there but have several friends from my undergrad days at Indiana that live in the city, and also lived just an hour away in Milwaukee for a few years.  I love the vibe of an older city and would totally live there if it weren't for the small problem of freezing weather.  The hubby had never been, so I was super excited to show him around.  We spent two days walking around Navy Pier, going to a Cubs game, eating deep dish pizza, and having drinks on the 95th floor of the Hancock Tower.  It was a bit chilly for Memorial Day, but we had a great time.

For the first day in Chicago we thought this was the Sears Tower.  
It's not.  
It's the Hancock Tower.
