Shannon came in from Canada at the end of October, so we were able to spend some time with her at some of our favorite places in Chicago. We picked up Melissa and Shannon at the Field Museum and headed over to the Bean. I'll say it again and again...the bean is one of my most favorite places in all of Chicago.
I don't think I've ever really been to the Bean at night. It is really difficult to take pictures of a huge mirror at night. Sheesh.
The group (left to right: Brandon, Jenny, Jason with Kent, Mary, Melissa and Shannon - I think Clark is the blur in the lower left corner.)
Kent had a blast here. This was his face 95% of the time.
The other 5% was this...
He loved running around with Clark and doing whatever Clark did. Monkey see, monkey do.
Clark loved having a little shadow too. What a trooper!
Our next stop was 103 floors up. We are all die hard and will call it the Sears Tower until we die. Sorry Willis.
I've never been to the Sears Tower at night. It was really neat. The lights just go on forever and ever and ever.
The boys loved going out on the Ledge. They walked out onto it without a problem and then started jumping. Apparently that made some other people in line kind of sick. We heard a few people say that they couldn't watch them. Oh well.
I can walk out on the Ledge, but to sit there and stare straight down...that makes my stomach turn a little bit. It was no problem for these guys though.
Another terrible group shot. That's what you get when you hand a stranger your camera...I guess it's not that bad. I'm just the only one looking from our family. Everyone else looks pretty good. It was easier for Shannon to sit on the Ledge. She was not loving the heights so much. (left to right: Shannon, Mary, Kent, Jason, Clark, Melissa, Brandon, Jenny)
After some dinner at Ricobene's and a little guided tour by Jason, we drove down to the museum campus to take a few pics and then home.
Come back soon Shannon!
