Here's Wrigley Field, right around the corner from the restaurant.
Then we went to Navy Pier. Steve, Joshua, and I rode the huge ferris wheel. I love ferris wheels. Steve - not so much. He doesn't like heights. But he was a trooper. He even smiled. :^D
Morgan and Aunt Susie rode the swings. *I* don't like "'round and 'round" rides. They mess with my equilibrium. Can you find Morgan waving for the camera?
How about if I zoom in?
The day had started a little overcast, but cleared up. The skyline still was a little foggy and hazy, though.
Here we are inside the Crystal Gardens. It was lovely in here.
Morgan just couldn't let her brother go. It was so sweet. I kind of felt the same way. I kept touching him like he was going to disappear any minute - or like it was a dream.
After we had seen all we wanted at Navy Pier, we went over to Millennium Park to walk around a bit. Because we hadn't walked enough at Navy Pier. :^D My legs were still stiff from Starved Rock.
Here's the Cloud Gate sculpture at Millennium Park, commonly known as "The Bean." Very interesting! I loved that you could see the whole skyline in it!
Here's a picture of us being reflected in The Bean. Kind of neat!
And here's the Crown Fountain. It was neat to watch! As well as all the kids (of all sizes and ages) playing in the water!
Joshua, however, wasn't about to get in that water!
We had a very long day. But it was loads of fun and great to be with Josh again. He requested McDonald's for supper before we dropped him back off at the base.
