Chicago adventures!

So this last weekend, we went to Chicago to celebrate our anniversary, and also to attend a wedding (in Indiana). We arrived Thursday and headed straight for the Navy Pier, where we hung out and took and architectural boat tour. We ate at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse that evening (which was EXCELLENT, and pricey). Friday we were able to shop the Magnificent Mile and really take in "Chicago." Chicago is a great place to visit, but I wouldn't have the patience to live there and put up with all the traffic, cabs, honking, etc... Anyway, here are a few pictures of our adventure! (Ok, more than a few.)

A "experimental night shot of Chicago- I had the shutter open for 30 seconds!

The wedding we attended was at Turkey Run State Park in Indiana. We had to hike to the ceremony- and it was SO beautiful- one of the coolest weddings I've attended. This is the happy couple (Jon's cousin was the groom)!

Along the way, we were posing for a bunch of pics and taking our sweet time- only to realize upon arriving to the ceremony site that the wedding had already started. We thought we were early but didn't realize Indiana is EASTERN time zone. Oops. Thankfully, we caught most of the ceremony.

The park was so beautiful!

Hey Leslie!

It looks like you had a great time! If you ever go back, you should check out the Chicago Times building, I just remembered that it is one of the coolest in the city - it has pieces of famous building or landmarks embedded in the exterior walls and they're all labeled. :-)

That is so cool that you went to a wedding at Turkey Run! I grew up in Indiana and we used to go there every summer for camping! You just took me down memory lane!!

So glad you had fun in Chicago! Your pics are awesome! I didn't know you were going to Turkey Run - I grew up about 45 minutes from there and went camping all the time there when I was little! :)
