We really DID got to Chicago
Where we met up with our great friends from Cleveland
DJ and Jen
And proceeded to ride our bikes all over the city.
The weather was crap - for some reason it always works out that we're traveling in may, and the weather is always crap - but that didn't stop us from having an amazing time!
Neither did my plantar fasciitis.
Ok, maybe the first night, when it was raining and we went exploring on foot, armed with an umbrella. I barely made it back to the hotel room alive.
But after that we stuck to our bikes
(and a wheelchair for the Art Institute of Chicago)
Which turned out to be the best and most fun way to see the city!
(The bikes, not the wheelchair)
We covered a lot of ground:
The Second City
just to name a few...
Some other highlights?
THE FOOD (of course)
time alone with Paul
and falling asleep to HGTV every night in our hotel room
Seriously one of the best trips we've ever done.
(Minus the part where I almost got hit by a bus while trying to outrun it on my bike. Just picture a pregnant lady on a big heavy orange beach cruiser pedaling her little heart out and the bus driver not seeing or not caring and you've pretty much got the picture)
Thanks for coming Harveys!
It was perfect - and wouldn't have been the same without you : )
P.S. Um yeah, I'm wearing the same thing in every picture, due to the fact that I only packed ONE jacket and ONE pair of jeans. It was supposed to be warm and sunny...
