Chi-Town Round 2

We love Chicago.
& We LOVED seeing it for the second time!
We stayed at a much closer hotel, right by the trains & not soooo creepy.
We were able to do a lot more this time around, mainly cause we knew where we were going.
We spent my birthday shopping,(ps.. Chicago has amazing shopping), ate some yummy yummy food then made our way to my very first (Ben's second) NHL game. It was so fun, I love live hockey, it's so fast paced & never makes me bored. I guess that is a good thing, seeing as it will be my life forever.
Sunday we spent walking, a LOT of walking. We went to Millennium park, probably my favorite places in Chicago. It has adorable shops, restaurants, amazing views & the Bean. We made our way to Buckingham Fountain then to the Field Museum. We literally walked FOREVER that day, our legs were dead, it was freezing cold, but it was all worth it.
Monday we headed to Navy Pier, it really was adorable there! Too bad it was too cold to really do anything, so we took a boat tour. It was amazing learning all about Chicago and seeing it from a different view, we HIGHLY recommend doing a Boat tour! The rest of the day we roamed around town, did some last minute shopping, went to the top of the John Hancock building & one last visit to The Cheesecake Factory.
We were excited to get back to warm weather, but surely did not want to leave!
It was the greatest birthday!
