Chicago Trip 2011

Thanks to the lovely weather in Chicago this weekend, we decided to cut our trip short.  Thankfully, it didn't start raining until the end of the Cubs-Pirates game so we got to stay and watch our team (the Pirates) win!  Steve is convinced it's because the baby is a good luck charm :)

Baby's first Pirates game!

After the game we went to Table 52 (Chef Art Smith's restaurant).  It was a very cool little place that had the feel of eating in someone's house.  Before your meal they bring you deviled eggs and goat cheese biscuits that are SO good!

On Sunday, we had planned to go to the Lincoln Park Zoo and Navy Pier but the weather didn't cooperate with our plans.  We made it to about four exhibits at the zoo before the thunder, lightning and rain started. But we did get to see the stork and her baby, so sweet!!

we thought this was so fitting for the blog!

We checked out the forecast for the rest of the day (rain and thunderstorms all day) and decided we might as well come home where it was sunny and dry.  We were happy to get back to our furbabies and even though our trip was cut short, we had a great time!

Happy Memorial Day!
