weekend recap | Chicago

There are no better visitors than my big brother and his girlfriend, Mariah. Two weekends ago, they showed me around their city, the Quad Cities. This weekend, it was my turn to show them around my city, Chicago.

When we first told our parents we were going to spend a weekend in Chicago, without hesitation they offered to cover a dinner for the three of us. Of course, we took full advantage of their offer. Dinner was at the stunning, Pump Room. This set the tone for the weekend. We were in for some fun times!!

On Friday, we made all the touristy stops. Starting with The Bean. Then made our way to Buckingham Fountain. From there we headed indoors to the Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium and Field Museum. When we walked out of the museum we got hit by the biggest gusts of wind. I had never quite understood where the name, Windy City, came from until then. These winds were knocking person after person over. 
Towards the end of the night, we went up the John Hancock to watch the sun set over the city.
