Chicago in July

Andrew and I had the opportunity to have a vacation, getaway and second honeymoon (as all trips without baby are referred to now). We were hosted by the Ardelean family, Agatha and George, who split time in Chicago and Scottsdale. I met Andrew Saturday night. We had a drink and a late dinner, 11PM! We dined at a sidewalk table and enjoyed watching the busy Chicago streets. Our week was enjoyable, relaxing and much needed. Andrew and I had some time to ourselves and time with friends. We ate delicious food, shopped, visited the pier, a day sap and caught a Cubs game.  We missed our sweet boy so much but were able to get daily pics, Facetime, texts and emails from Mimi and Pops in California. Davis didn't flinch from schedule or temperament. Makes us think we should of done this much earlier. We are grateful for my parents watching Davis and are looking forward to our next adventure.

Sunday afternoon at Wrigley. We enjoyed seats a few rows up on the 1st baseline before the sun slowly crept our way. It was great to see this ballpark. 

When the sun came, Chicago felt like Louisiana (having recently rained). We had a drink with a friend (sports agent) in these seats, the GM's.

The Ardeleans after a wonderful dinner atop the Hancock Building. We visited the bar after for a closer view but alas, no capuccino served here. George was really interested in a one, note his expression. 
On the 96th floor of the Hancock Building. 

And we came home to this with a souvenir.

Home Sweet Home
