Babymoon

Our babymoon is booked!

We're going here...


Yes, Chicago!


We're headed there Labor Day weekend for a fun getaway. We figured the weather would be good and we could just spend time with ourselves. We are so excited!

We can't wait to see "The Bean",


The Cubs,

And the city in general.



It's been quite a few years since Fred and I have been to Chicago and we've never been together. If you have any must-see's or must-do's (or must-eat's), please let me know.

Great idea! Our baby moon was to go hiking in Gatlinburg haha! I was like 10 weeks pregnant and we did an 8 mile hike. I could never do that now haha;)

Out of all the places we ate, we LOVED Gino's East Pizza. DELISH!! And for sight seeing, we we up the Sears Tower (now Wills Tower) and stepped out onto the Sky Deck. Pretty freaky!

Oh, and YOU MUST TRY Garrett's popcorn. Get the Chicago mix. BEST STUFF EVER!!!!!

Ashley said...

I can't wait to hear all about it!

Sarah said...

I LOOOOOOOOOVE Chicago, it's one of my FAVORITE cities. There's an amazing cupcake place called More Cupcakes, delish!

Shedd Aquarium is also so fun, they have a dolphin show, etc.

The zoo is also a really good zoo, it's always busy but it's really fun.

That's just a couple of things I can think of. :)

The Chicago Ghost tour is by far my favorite! It's like the architecture tour, but with really great stories! http://www.chicagohauntings.com/
