Some Chicago Pics

Well its been a great trip so far, been some bumps and some learning curves about sightseeing in downtown Chicago, but we have had some great experiences, lots of fun and have seen so much!! I am so tired after two days of sightseeing with way too much walking, but its been worth it. I am gonna share some pics with you though :P

Ok, its gonna be hard to add captions to each photo, so I will give you a brief summary: We went to the Sears tower and I went out on the 4ft all glass extentions that extend out of the building at the 103rd floor, didnt scare me a bit, I though it would, but it didnt! My favortie of the trip so far is the Cloud Gate or better known as "the Bean", it is so amazing in person, looks almost like a mirage. We took the Architechural trip on the river and it was so informative, and what great views. It had rained 8 inches the night before so the river was too high for the boats to run till the afternoon. We did Navy Pier, saw the Stained Glass museum, rode the Ferris Wheel, and during our walk to Navy Pier we ran into the movie set for Transformers 3 that they are filming here right now. During our walks we saw the wrecked cars all over the place being used as props, very interesting! And lastly we are in a hotel directly across from the Convention center where CHA is being held starting tomorrow.
