A stroll in the city
A week before we drove to NC, we all, (Amy, Tom, Hannah, Riley and I) went up to Chicago. Amy and Tom were taking Hannah to see the nutcracker and I was coming up to visit and enjoy the city before we left. I feel like we were there long enough for me to enjoy the city. And Chicago has so much to offer! I guess it's just a reason to visit. In the summer though. Saturday afternoon, Riley and I took the train into the city and where I would later meet everyone for dinner in Greektown.
I had no agenda, I just wanted to walk around.
The train was about 40 minutes late, which put a limit to how far I could wander, since I had to give myself time to get to the restaurant on time.
I simply picked a direction and walked.
Even though I only had about an hour, which was not as much time as I had hoped for, I still enjoyed my stroll.
I forgot gloves for Riley. So I gave her mine. Then she proceeded to wave her hands around all over the place.
It was nice to walk around at Christmas, because the city puts up a lot of lights.
I can't remember what this is, but it's a special building. David could tell me, only he's not here. And I know there's a streetlight in the middle of the photo, but I still like the way it looks.
With Greg, at a Greek restaurant in Greektown.
Dinner was fantastic, especially the garlic sauce, which was pureed potatoes with A LOT of garlic.
Riley and Josie, Greg's giant lab. Riley loves him so much.
And he's so gentle with Riley.
