Oh, hmmmmmm, ok - it's been over a month since my last post! Eeeeekk!! Where does the time go! I can't believe I am so behind and its October now and I am still blogging about Chicago in June.
So, where were we. Ahhh yes, we got back from the wonderful boat ride. We got told we had to go back to the hotel, not sure why. Tori, Laurie, Deb and Shell were supposed to head off to see Wicked but Shell had to get something from the hotel. Aha, did she though - nope! Coz the little plotter had been plotting a surprise, none other than Kari!! So we walk to the front of the hotel and Kari is there - well, you can imagine the screams - especially from Tori and Laurie! Yeah and everyone else! It was awesome! You know what, since being on JS I say awesome a lot - I never used to say that before! Here's Kari screaming with everyone!
Soooo Liv had mentioned she wanted to go to this thing called The Bean - which is That Big Shiny Thing in Millennium Park. We went yeah ok let's go there and took a long walk not knowing what to expect. Having a bit of a rest before continuing on!
But before getting there we stop at the Giordanos, the Pizza place where we will be eating in the evening to check it out and have a bit of a rest! Check us out!
As we get to the Millenium Park we bump into Liv's DH RJ and her 5 gorgeous kids!
OK back to the Millenium Park. What a fantastic place! And The Bean - amazing!!
Yep, loads of cool photos taken at The Bean. Then some went off to a museum and Joan and I decided to go walking and look for a bookstore. Took a while but we found it and had a nice drink and chilled out for a bit. Walking back to the hotel found a great arty type shop, of course we couldnt resist it and we shopped!
very deep-pan, it was very gooey and tons of cheese and it was soooo good but filling!
Onto more group photos! Todd, what a great guy, was the official photographer having to take photos with 16 cameras!! You did great Todd!
The food was great, the company even greater! We were supposed to go wandering off somewhere to watch fireworks, but think everyone was pretty knackered by then! So Jessica invited us all up to her suite for girly yakking and some free yummy desserts!!
Of course there were more speeches and gifts and laughing anc crying and more laughing!
Yeah, you get the picture. It was great fun! AWESOME!!!
Some of us disappeared to bed whilst others stayed up yakking! Sadly, that was the end of Saturday!
