We had a wonderful time in the windy city of Chicago (which wasn’t actually windy at all while we were there). This was our first official family vacation together where we weren’t off visiting family or friends in Kansas. Lily had a great time seeing the sites and we had a great time watching her take it all in.
Had to stop from time-to-time to capture a few for her along the way!
This image just melts my heart! They look SO happy and it’s a moment I’ll always cherish!
And, of course I had to take a portrait of my love.
This was our 11 year anniversary and those eyes melt me every time I look into them.
Ahhh…how I can’t believe how lucky I am to grow old with this man!
Michael had heard about this great German restaurant and boy was it ever delicious!
We left with smiles on our faces, humming Sinatra with bellies full and a new cookbook in tow!
(please tell me we’re not the only ones who take pics of the places we eat…)
On the way home, we stopped in south city (yes, I know…) and ate at Calumet Fisheries.
I highly recommend it! Best smoked seafood EVER!
After that, we headed on home listening to Counting Crows almost all the way back to St. Louis and counting our blessing along the way!
