The boy and I went to Chicago for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. I had to be there that week for a tradeshow, so the time seemed right to go down early and have a little fun.

We took the train down from Milwaukee so we didn't have to worry about dealing with a car. Parking in Chicago is ri-donk-ulous!

We got there a little early, so we had to wait. Luckily it was nice outside, so we took advantage!

Since it was cloudy and chilly on the morning of my birthday, we headed to Navy Pier first.

Waiting for the bus

Then as the sky cleared up, we made our way to Millennium Park.

Got to have a picture of the bean.

Broke out the orb for a bit of fun.

The next couple days weren't as nice weather wise, so we ended up not going up to the top of Sears Willis Tower.

We did get a chance to tour the submarine at the Museum of Science and Industry. That was pretty fun!

Checking out the steam train

I enjoyed walking around downtown.

Playing with the orb a bit more. I can't decide whether I like this one better upside-down or right-side up.

Resting my feet after some long days at the tradeshow and enjoying my view through the dirty window.

Overall, it was a pretty awesome time with my boy! One of the best birthdays ever!

If you like my photography (and many of you tell me you do), PLEASE leave comments on my pictures throughout this year. I don't know if I'll be able to continue without that encouragement. Also needed will be suggestions for photography subjects or locations. I'm always looking for ideas!
