Road Trip Day 3 - Chicago, IL

Saturday morning we caught the train into the city again. Our first stop was Eataly, Mario Batali's Italian superstore! It was pretty cool and Andrew was in love with their cheese and meat displays. ;)



Then we had lunch at Weber Grill. We walked past it Friday night and the smell had Andrew wanting to come back. :)




After lunch, we caught the bus to the Navy Pier! Unfortunately the Ferris wheel was closed, but we stumbled upon one company doing the last tour of the season on the Chicago River! I have always wanted to do one here in Chicago so even though it was a bit expensive, we jumped on it! It was so great!








Trump Tower





If you look at the sky between the buildings in this picture, you'll see the tightrope that Nik Wallenda would walk across the very next night!







 







Willis Tower


After our river tour, we were pretty cold so we caught the bus and had hot chocolate at Hershey's Chocolate World Chicago. :)



We did a little shopping after warming up and Andrew saw Harry Caray's Holy Cow! ;)


Saturday night we had a special show planned. We were going to see Dancing Pros: Live! at the Cadillac Palace Theatre! Two of the people starring in the show I have seen dance many times on Dancing with the Stars so I was really excited! The Cadillac Palace Theatre is in Chicago's Theatre District and even McDonald's was in lights there! ;)








The show was so great! I absolutely loved it! 

We had a late train ride home that night, but it was worth it!
