My husband has taken me on a surprise Birthday trip to Chicago! This is something we always talked about doing and now are! We are walking all over down town doing everything tourists would do. I love it, I love big cities, people every where, just having to walk to get places. What more can a girl want.

We’ve been on a archeological and historical boat tour on the river. Now I know a lot about the buildings because as we walk around we will be like “oh yeah, this building is that one where Al Capon hung out in the speak easy that was at the top back in the day”.
For dinner we went to a Cuban restaurant where they put honey and cinnamon in the sweet potatoes that was served with fried fish and steamed veggies .


I had some Jalapinos mashed potatoes with pulled pork and served with creamed corn.


I am not a Cuban food fan.

To end the day out we went to Willis towers where we were able to look all over the city from the 103rd floor.

One can step out into these glass rooms that step out over the city. Yikes but cool!
