Everything in Chicago, Part 2

Tom and I have found Chicago to be a wonderful city! We started our day with a visit to the tallest building in the United States, the Sears Tower.

This is Tom, lip pointing towards our next destination...

Me getting on the El, the smoothest form of public transportation we've been on all year!

Here we are! We bought some tickets on the street for a shady seat (the kind without direct sun, not the sketchy kind of seats) in historic Wrigley Field.

Jeff Tweedy of the band Wilco, was in town for Lollapalooza. He threw out the first pitch.

Here's what baseball looks like when it's not covered in a dirty dome!

After the game, we stopped in at a pet store to buy this rope bone for Ruby. We're so excited to see her!

After a day of more sightseeing and baseball, we were exhausted. We ordered some yummy Chicago pizza and watched Ironman in our hotel room. It was a great visit, and we'll definitely come back! (Especially if Spirit Air and American Airlines keep up the incredibly low flights between San Pedro Sula and Chicago). Now we're going to pack up our summer suitcases for the last time and go to the airport. Our next post on Karine and Tom in Honduras will actually be from Honduras. Woo-hoo!

Glad to hear you enjoyed Chicago - I hope you guys have a great day of travel! Good luck with your first day of school. Casey

I like the idea of a Cubs vs Twins World Series. Two teams that have waited a long time and could use the national attention. Enjoy your first day of school and have safe travels.

Tom and Karine,

We miss you here and loved having you for the summer. Both kids have said at different times that they miss you. Christopher just looks around for you:)
