Weekend in Chicago

It was great to see Jake and Jennifer.
The ceremony was pretty.
Nice and cool before the wedding.

After my doctor's appointment on Friday we headed to Chicago for the weekend. This was our first weekend to be away from both boys who were staying with Mimi and Pop. We were joining in the wedding celebration of Alicia and Ryan. Ryan is one of Tom's good friends from college. They are both pilots and had so much fun together during their time at ISU. Ryan is such a great guy and we are so happy for him. On Friday night we went to the rehearsal dinner at Gino's Pizza. It was such a great spot for a big party and so great to see old friends. On Saturday morning we slept in, what a nice treat, and then went to lunch at Rainforest Cafe. We spent the rest of the day shopping on Michigan Avenue. It was a role reversal in shopping since I am pregnant and Tom bought a pair of shoes and three shirts. We had lots of fun and enjoyed our time together. On Saturday evening we went to the wedding. The wedding was held out side and the reception was in a huge antique store. There were so many beautiful antiques in the store and was a beautiful setting for a reception. It was a very hot day and the reception site did not have air conditioning so it was super hot. We had a great time and enjoyed sharing in this special day. This morning we woke up and had breakfast before driving home to get our boys. We really enjoyed our time together and had a great weekend in the windy city.
