Sneak-peek

Vacation to Chicago

Personal / July 20, 2011

I took my family up to Chicago and Grand Rapids, MI to visit my sister who lives in Lincoln Park and some friends who recently moved to Michigan.  It was great seeing everyone and visiting the midwest.  Chicago was incredible and the weather was amazing.  A week just wasn’t long enough.  The museums there are amazing and so big that you really need days to go through them.  We had hours combined with a 20 month old who doesn’t have much of a taste Monet or Van Gough quite yet.  I think the highlight of the trip was going to Second City, which is kind of like a launch pad for comedians onto Saturday Night Live.  It’s in improv group that has had the likes of John Candy, Steven Colbert, Dan Akroyd, and Chris Farley before they went on to fame and fortune.  The current members were just incredible and just about had me crying laughing.

While there I was able to sneak out and take some cool pictures of Chicago.  I used Flickr to help me find the cool spots for Chicago pictures.  There was a forum thread about it.  Go internet!
