On Thursday afternoon, we headed out to Chicago for a few days. Kirk and I wanted to get away before BD2 comes, just the 2 of us and we were fortunate to have it all work out for us in Chicago! Kirk's Aunt Teresa and Uncle Keith and his cousins watched Elijah for us overnight and we went and stayed in a hotel in Chicago Thursday night and then explored the city on Friday. Friday night we headed back to Uncle Keith and Aunt Teresa's for dinner and to see our little man again. It was great to spend time with them as well as Kelly! We had a great time...who knows when our next overnight, just the 2 of us, will be? Thanks to all who helped us out! It was so good to get away.
The view of Lake Michigan from our hotel room on the 31st floor. Very cool!
They were filming Transformers 3 on Michigan Ave downtown and had portions of the street blocked off. Here is a piece of the set.
