Our good friends from college, Roger and Mandy Woodhouse, came to visit us for the week. Steve and I have been to Chicago a lot, but this was the first time actually staying the night in Chicago and it really makes a difference. Some of the trip highlights were:

Riverboat cruise (including Lake Michigan) it’s a nice scenic view of the river as well as the skyline

Chicago style pizza at the original Uno’s
Shopping the Magnificent Mile (Our hotel was across the street from Gap…I couldn’t ask for more!)
Navy Pier with Fireworks (the first time I’ve seen fireworks truly choreographed to several songs, quite clever and very entertaining!)

Wicked the Musical (my second time seeing it this month and I’m addicted)

Taste of Chicago (food fair at the park where you buy tickets and sample different food)

Chicago Traffic…I’m just glad I don’t live there!

We brought them back with us to see Milwaukee and we had a great time. At the end of it Steve and I realized how much we’d rather people come visit us then have to take Hallie on an airplane!!
