Zach and I hopped on the Metra on Wednesday morning to head Downtown. It is the first time I've been on the Metra from Oswego to Downtown. It's about an hour trip but so much better than fighting crazy city traffic and drivers.

Zach's only goal for the trip was to walk around downtown and hang out. OK, I can do that. :)
We started out at Union Station and walked to Millenium Park. It was a bright bright hot Chicago day and of all my shots of the "Bean", this is my favorite. I love Zach's reflection and what it says about what we see inside of ourselves. Cool, no?

Then we headed down Michigan Avenue.

They had these amazing sculptures outside of the Tribune Building. This one was at least 20 feet tall (looks to me like they might be discussing medical billing..what d'ya think?)

And this was another sculpture

On our way down Michigan, it was so warm, this water looked inviting. Do you think Chicago water is really this blue? Neither do I. :)

We had lunch at the Cheese Cake Factory in the John Hancock building and then hunted down one of Zach's favorite stores.

We headed back down State Street for about a million miles ;) to Union Station and a long but relaxing Metra ride home. We hardly spent any money (just the train ride and some lunch) but it was one of the best cheap adventures ever. I sincerely enjoyed my day with him.

Oh I love how you changed up the picture of Zach. So glad you were able to spend the day with him! Great photoshop work.


To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. Ralph Waldo Emerson


Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Hebrews 12: 1-3
