Chicago Trip

At one of their parks they had this weird looking bean scuplture. It was actually kinda fun. I love the buildings in the reflection.
Us in front of the bean.
Navy Pier
A weird building - I got to take the architecture cruise down the river while Kent was in meetings.
this was 2 blocks from our hotel.
I thought this building was a church - actually, it is the Tribune building. Can you imagine? A newspaper company in a building like that?
this was looking out our hotel window. You can see the river below and the glass building in the center is - Trump Tower of course!
Again - looking out our window. It was a fun trip - we hadn't been there before. We were on the 16th floor, but felt dwarfed with all the huge buildings around us.

A birthday celebration - here and in Chicago

We splurged and took a limo with 7 other people and went to the 95th floor of the John Hancock bldg. to eat. what a view we had from way up there! Our friends are from Montana, Maine, Kansas and Mississippi. (Kent had National Builders meetings)
He got sang to twice that night. After we ate on top of the world, then we went downstairs and next door and had dessert at the Cheesecake Factory.

Celebration at home
After eating, we went back to the house to open presents. He got a new hammock!
Anne and Kyle trying to see what Grandpa was getting.
Kara taught Robert's family a fun, new game - Ninja Destruction. They had alot of fun.
Even little Claire got into the action (even though she wasn't feeling at all well.)

Here we are at Tucano's to celebrate Kent's birthday. You can see the free meal gift card in his pocket. We love that place!
