Chicago!  Franz had never been, so we tagged along with the Chicago experts Tim and Angela (they were going for a wedding) and made it a pseudo-anniversary trip.  Isabel stayed home with Grandma and Grandpa, so you may want to stop now if you were hoping for a picture of her.  :)

Portillo's  for some Chicago hot dogs

Tim and Angela enjoying the street food as well.

After we discovered that the Shedd Aquarium was having a free day for all the locals (and the line was excessively long), we took a snapshot and headed over to the Art Institute.

Franz analyzing American Gothic

We got to see a Lichetenstein exhibit

At Millenium park

Me and THE BEAN!

See us?

On the Architecture Tour

Matt and Tim at the famous improv show, Second City (Matt got called up on stage!)

Deep dish at Lou Malnatis

Navy Pier

Franz and Chicago skyline

Proof that we visited Chinatown, not too much to tell

White Sox game

Awesome dinner at Gibson's steakhouse

Most amazing dessert ever

We made it back to the Shedd Aquarium and saw jellyfish

We had a great meal with lots of pig parts at this place.  Thanks Tim and Angela for the good eats on our trip!!

The most important part - Cubs game at Wrigley!!

With my good friend Zach, in the bleachers (the falling drunk guy behind us captures what the bleacher experience was like)

Cubs win!

Proof that the Cubs win

Some Garrett popcorn on the last day.

What a great trip with lots of great food and good friends.
