Another Chicago Trip...

So, after surviving both Thanksgiving AND Black Friday, I had to make yet another trip to Chi-Town and am becoming a pro at navigating Chicago O'Hare. My Mom is one of the few people whose trip ends and I am sad to see her go! But I am glad we got some time together and am thankful with each group of my visitors to our new home, everyone has wanted to do and see different things!
Beautiful shot of the skyline with my Mom and Hubby! I wish you could have seen the black sky in the opposite direction... Thankfully we narrowly escaped most of the bad weather while there on Saturday. It was a bit let miserable than trudging through the pouring rain at pick-up... We are in front of the Field Museum in downtown...
Had some taxidermy fans in the group, but I will spare you most the animal shots... these are just a crowd favorite. Famed "Ghost in the Darkness" lions were a must see for my step-dad. Also a must see movie...
Big, BIG, Bear Sloth as I call it... I was put in the photo for size reference.

Also made another stop at the Navy Pier, but it was raining by the time we got over there... this is a shot across the way... You can see the storm a little...
Last shot at Margarita-Ville! Forgive my family for being big Jimmy Buffet fans...

Hope your Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend were as great as mine- filled with love, family, and favorite people! What did you do?
