Our Chicago trip!

So much has happened…

I have been doing things Matt and I truly thought we would never do again!
I had to go back to Chicago for my six month check up. We decided to go a few days early just for the fun of it.
Matt and I headed to Chicago with our friends Sarah and Marshall Lewis. We landed September 10, Saturday morning and go straight to our hotel the NEWLY RENOVATED Embassy Suites Downtown Chicago then head back out to take them on the L-train all across Chicago. That night we went to see Colin Quinn at the Broadway Playhouse At Water Tower Place. http://www.playbill.com/ He was hilarious.   The next day we got up early and headed to the Field Museum http://fieldmuseum.org/ where we spent 5 hours just pouring thru every exhibit we could.  Everything there was beyond fascinating. They have the most complete tyrannosaurus skeleton ever found!   Sue. A T. rex Named Sue Photo Gallery We left there and went up to the top of Willis (sears) tower. http://www.willistower.com/

Standing at 1,450 feet and 110 stories high, Willis Tower is the tallest building in the western hemispher.   We went to a wonderful, off the beaten path, Italian place for dinner that night. http://lascarola.com/ The next day we headed out for an awesome “Food Tour” discovering so many wonderful flavors and tastes. http://www.chicagofoodplanet.com And then went on an architectural river tour.

Again beautiful! We did a lot of stuff this time I just never imagined I would be able to do again. We found out a lot about Chicago that you would really only learn on City Tours.  It was great.  Sarah and Marshall flew out that night. The next two days were filled with tests and MRI’s!! We left Chicago on wings! NO new lesions – thats huge. So the hell I went through so far seems to have been worth it?
