Our Surprise and Anniversay


Wow!  What a trip we've had in just two days. We arrived in Chicago yesterday afternoon. We rented a car and drove two hours south to Uncle Jim and Aunt Linda's house. It was her 50th birthday and we were surprising her. She was very surprised. 



We had a great time at their house. They are wonderful hosts. The made a huge breakfast for us this morning. It was a short and lovely visit. 

This is their two daughters jenny and Sarah. 


We drove to Chicago and check in to our hotel. We headed straight for deep dish pizza. 

It's a little cold in Chicago in November. Below freezing. 

We found this great restaurant / store called Eataly. Like Italy. It's Mario Battali's place and super cool. David was in stinky cheese heaven. 

Tomorrow is more yummy food. Maybe a museum and exploring this awesome city.
