That Toddling Town!
From beginning ...
to end, and in-between a great time was had in Chicago! These two pictures were taken at the Lego store. This green dragon circled the store.
This is the fourth get-together for a group of friends I've met online. The group started eight years ago and we are still going strong. This is our fourth get-together and we came from New York, New Jersey, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Oklahoma and Colorado. We missed our friends from Georgia, Texas and Calilfornia, but hope we can all be together next year. We're dreaming of Santa Fe.
We visited the Navy Pier and the Stained Glass Museum...
Got an early look at the decorations at Macy's on State Street
It was the first day for the Christmas decorations and we just missed seeing Giuliana Rancic, who was there right before we got there. We sampled some Frango mint fudge and had a delicious lunch in the Walnut Room. What a fun treat. It reminded me so much of having lunch with my mother on Saturdays at the department stores in Hartford when I was growing up.
But the best part was laughter -- lots and lots of laughter. I found photo machines at the Navy Pier and we couldn't resist having our pictures taken -- several times. This one came out well -- though we're missing Indiana Phyllis -- and I can't help but share it.
Thanks for the travel recommendations. We loved Navy Pier, but unfortunately didn't make it to Superdawgs. I'll just have to make another trip to Chicago.
Back to New York to sunny fall weather, but my heart is still in Chicago. Thanks, Chicago, for the memories.
