Chicago Trip

IMG_1626Linzy and I were in Chicago this weekend for my cousin Susan's wedding and to see our family there. It was a quick trip, we flew down on Friday after work and then flew home this afternoon.

The wedding was in downtown Chicago, right on Michigan avenue, so we got to experience a part of the city that we don't normally. Despite having been to Chicago more times then I can count, we've mostly either been visiting people in the suburbs or going somewhere specific downtown. This was the first time in a long time that I've spent time wandering around downtown.

It was interesting to see all of the shops on Michigan avenue, and we had a tasty lunch at Gino's East. The wedding was a lot of fun, and was quite fancy. We had a good time visiting with family and also got to spend time with family on Sunday and Monday before coming home.

The flight home was interesting as we happened to get upgraded to first class, which was cool, except that the flight from Chicago to Minneapolis is only about 50 minutes. So it was mostly pointless. But we did get to sit in row one, and have fancy snacks.

It's nice to be home. That will only last until next Wednesday when I leave again.
