Once we had both feet back on the ground, we walked to Grant Park (where the Bean is and Buckingham Fountain) for the Taste of Chicago. You buy tickets and you can sample food and drinks that are offered. There were tons of options. We got the taste portions so that we could try lots of food. We consumed pizza, potstickers, ice cream, crepes, sweet potato fries, cheeseburger, and much more. My mom literally walked right into the Mayor of Chicago, and they exchanged words of apology. It was hilarious.
Later, we went to the Bean for the famous pictures. We obviously needed more food, and we stopped at Panera, mainly to sit. We got Garrett's popcorn (a Chicago must-have), and walked back to the metra train station. It was a great day overall, but I got a little too much sun for my liking. Here are some of my pics... I took 327 pictures!
Also yesterday, I booked a flight to see my great friend Cassandra!!! I can't wait to leave Chicago for Denver at the end of the summer. We are going to roadtrip it back to Chicago where we go to school. So excited! 40 days!
