bliss in the city

so this is my big question:

how did ferris do all that and still beat his parents home before 6:00?

yep, that ferris.

ferris bueller.

of ferris bueller's day off.

our little family spent the week in the big city.

chicago.

what a beautiful city it is, too.

we based our trip on this movie, the boys watched it on the dvd player in the car on the way there. i can recite very few lines correctly from any movie but i might know this movie line for line.

you've gotta love ferris...."he's a righteous dude".

chicago has so much....the field museum, the adler plantarium, the shedd aquarium, the contemporary art museum, the chicago institute of arts, navy pier, the john hancock observatory, millenium park, the magnificiant mile....we did all of it. though we didn't eat pancreas. i'm alright with that.

b and i in a reflective shot....at cloud gate otherwise known as *the bean* in millenium park

r and i on a water taxi heading out of the city toward the lake

big red and i at navy pier....in the windy city:)

we parked our car....er, the valet or as r called him the *ballet* parked our car in the underground garage at our hotel and we walked this city. we took a few taxis as well, but this is a walking city. and did we ever walk. millenium park we soaked our toes. ahhh....a little bliss in the city.

I always wondered about the Ferris time line, too. With all the traffic and construction, you can barely get into and out of the city from the suburbs in that amount of time. Anyway, adorable family. And love the blog. I think I'm switching to wordpress soon, and I'll probably go all white, too. It's just "clean."
