mini blog: chicago, day IIIIII

Hoooooommmmme! The grass in Texas has a certain color to it. I can usually tell.
Anyway, hardly slept the night before, don't know why... maybe because it was really warm in the room... so I took a two hour shower and still didn't fall asleep...

We woke up earlier than normal (10am, instead of noon), because we needed to check out of the hotel.... but neither of us slept well, and were SUPER tired... so we lounged and packed until 12, then checked out. We ate a crowded cafe (I was grumpy), and decided to skip the science museum and just go to the airport early and nap there. AND we ended up catching an early flight home! (although we nearly missed it because I misread the ticket, and went to gate B22, for seat B2... when it was the other way around... yay dyslexia.)

Andrew was so happy to see me!

mini blog: chicago, day IIIII

Last full day.
Woke up around noon (again), and climbed a building.
There's a vacant building next to our hotel, and I wanted to climb the fire escape to the roof so I could take a photo of Monica in our hotel room. So I did it.
I also bruised my left ring toe when I landed badly from a jump to the ground after all my adventuring.

Then we walked to Gino's East for pizza. Best deep dish pizza ever. ever. Then we walked to H&M (their north location), I got a blazer for myself, and some tee shirts for my brothers. We tried to go to the zoo, but got there too late. Went back to hotel to rest, and Googled a crepe place... walked there and it was closed. As was most other shops and such. Sunday 6pm... sheesh. Stopped at Johnny Rockets for burger/hotdog/malts.
Got snacks and drinks at the Emerald Loop (again), but left early 'cus it was so freaking muggy and warm inside... and someone nearby ordered tuna fish. Yuk.
Monica's worst day. She was grumpy and humid. "We didn't have a vacation, we just traveled. I wish we planned a day of just nothing."
