Chicago Preview

Chicago exceeded my expectations. By a lot! What a fantastically fantastic city it is. We flew home yesterday and I’m wishing I was still there. We averted two near crises. One, I left my camera battery at home and had a meltdown when I realized this fact. “We’re not in a third world country,” the Husband said as he attempted to ease my hysteria. And he was right. There was a camera store a few blocks from our hotel and we bought a new battery before we headed to the baseball game.

And two, it rained harder than I’ve ever seen on Saturday afternoon, which meant we had to alter our initial sightseeing plans. Luckily, the weather changed drastically within a couple of hours and all was well.

I won’t deny I’m overly dramatic and sometimes crazy. It may be a little bit before I go through the hundreds of photos we took, but I didn’t want to leave you empty-eyeballed. So here’s a preview of our weekend in Chicago. And a giant thanks to Erika and Irene for filling in for me while I was out!
