boyworld on the move...

in planes, trains...& automobiles...plus a bus or 2 for good measure...after a whirlwind of adventure we are home from chicago with some good memories in the stash! we spent time in high places...low places...places that rock...places for learning...silly places...places that are rollin' in the dough...(no, they were not able to relieve the federal reserve of that suitcase filled with 1 million USD!) & even a place of beauty (though boyworld did protest a bit about this one!)...chicago welcomed us with open arms & a joy that was quite contagious.it is truly one of the friendliest places i have visited & though i am not a city-dweller by nature, i would return for another visit in a heartbeat.

& the food...don't get me started! chicago deep-dish pizza after a day spent in airports & on planes (where there is not one bite of food to be found domestically) is pure heaven.but my true love found in chicago was this~~ intelligentsia coffee. please have mercy, that stuff is amazing! boyworld did not quite understand my swooning...they were busily munching on a dunkin donut when i found this new way to satisfy my addiction. oh well, there is still hope for their immature palates! & thank God for the internet...i can have a bit o' my chicago heaven delivered right to my home...sigh. home again, but the wanderlust continues...in pursuit of good coffee, gelato & adventure all over the world...

So much fun! Were you on top of the Sears Tower? Which deep dish pizza place did you go to? I was in Chicago once 30 years ago, and I loved the same things then.

This looked like a fun time. I'm not much of a city person either but every now and then it is fun to "do it up".

Now that coffee sounds like something right up my alley. Hmmmmmm guess I might google and get it delivered to me her in New Mexico.

Thinking of you. Take care.

k-bug...love you too!!!

cat...yes we were~ & the hancock building too. boyworld loves high places (& so do i). Gino's for pizza (a matter of convenience). it is a great city.

paula...my sentiments exactly! a change of scenery is good to shake things up a bit.

oh dory...your last post will stay with me for a *very, very* long time! hugs to you!!

blue eyed GF...that is my fav because it levels the playing field a bit with height, something we mommas of tall boys occasionally need! TTYS!!
