Alright, so this was a while ago, but here are pictures from our band trip to Chicago this past spring. Sorry it took me like 18 years to finally post these. I just didn't feel like it. Plus, there are so many. And because there are so many, I just put them into a bunch of collages. Enjoy! At the Navy Pier, which was this street next to Lake Michigan with all these little shops and restaurants where we shopped and ate. We went to the Shedd Aquarium. Then we went shopping. And yes, my friends bought underwear. And later that night, we went and saw Yo-Yo Ma perform with the Chicago Symphony. It was amazing! But, unfortunately we couldn't take in cameras. Dang it. A tour of the city. Cubs stadium, pidgeons, wierd statues, parks, Harpo Studios, NBC Studios, some more tall buildings... This was our first day in Chicago. All of us looked like crap because we hadn't had time to shower or get ready or anything yet. We didn't even go to our hotel until that afternoon. We visited the Sears Tower, took a boat ride, and ate dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. (among other things). We ate lunch here our first day. Deep dish pizza...Chicago style!! So good!

The Sears Tower. So much fun! It's 103 stories tall. It was insanely scary to look down from the very top. Just the thought of it was terrifying. They had these glass boxes where you could stand and see all the way to the ground.
But, unfortunately, it was too cloudy to do so. It was still pee-your-pants scary though.

So much fun! Trips to big cities (I mean big like Chicago and NYC) are a blast. Thanks for taking so many pictures. For some reason I couldn't enlarge them :S Thanks, though, Julia. So, was Chicago cool enough to visit again sometime?

Yeah, I don't know why they can't be enlarged. That's dumb. I would definitely visit Chicago again! But only in warm weather. ;)
