Rise and Shine! Breakfast at 6am and out the door by 7am. My dad and I were back on the road again.
We decided to get some coffee first. Starbucks is always a good idea.
And then we said bye to Cleveland!
Oh why hello there Indiana! Hope you don’t mind but we’re just passin’ through.
Chicago: 235 more miles. Oh my!
Here we are 5 and a half hours in the car and we’re close!
Once we got to the Windy City, we checked into our hotel. We got a nice room overlooking a part of Lake Michigan.
Now the fun begins…
My dad and I settled in a bit but then we were off once again. We had a special lunch date with my good friend Alyssa who went to college with me in SoCal. Haven’t seen her since graduation in May so I was really excited and happy to see her. She chose an amazing deep dish pizza place – Lou Malnati’s! Yum!
After the delicious lunch, we used Uber to get to Millennium Park. (Just a side note – before this trip, the Bean was all I could talk about so I was really excited, which is why I might have over did it with the pictures. But I honesty couldn’t help myself and it was SO worth it!) Here are some of my top favorites:
( ^ I got yelled at for standing on the chair but it just had to be done.)
Many photos later… We decided to walk back from the park down Michigan Avenue. The walk back to the hotel was about a mile and it was chilly but beautiful.
When we were almost back we stumbled upon this public art event involving chalk. We decided to participate. In the box there were two parts we were supposed to fill out. “I want to live in a world where…” and “To create this world, I will…”
Once we got back to our hotel, we couldn’t wait to take off our boots. We rang up the front desk for some house slippers.
Now it’s time to kick back and relax in our stylish slippers. Road Trip: Day 3 – Minneapolis starts early tomorrow morning! North Dakota – we’re coming for you!
