The Chicago '13 Stream

For Thanksgiving weekend Devin's parents once again took us all to Chicago. For those of you familiar with iPhone photo sharing streams...us iPhone users linked up and shared photos throughout the weekend. So here's my commentary on some of the Chicago '13 stream...

While Devin was photographing me chopping up Brussels at my parent's house before our Thanksgiving lunch...

The rest were doing a Starbucks stop and heading off to Chicago.

We were anticipating my mom's BBQ turkey.

As well as a chocolate/pecan/pretzel pie.

The rest of the crew had the traditional Potbelly lunch.

We drove through country roads to get to the interstate to Chicago...

The others arrived and shared views from their hotel rooms.

We couldn't leave the hotel until the Michigan/Ohio game ended. I hear it was an undesired result.

There was the obligatory Apple store stop.

There was the tea stop where others were moderately pleased with their honey tea but more interested in my bubble tea. What are those bubbles made of anyway?!


Devin the navigator took us on the scenic route for some photo ops.

We enjoyed our time sans Henrik, but talked about him a lot.

A great dinner at State & Lake.

Then onto the show. I personally would choose to see Wicked over last year's Les Mis. So fun!
After a night of sleep (some more than others) it was on to the traditional breakfast stop at Grand Lux...
Casey and Aaron's (non-alcoholic) fizzy breakfast drinks. Aaron might have been a bit embarrassed about getting one. Casey's little girl is due in early February!

Brady's Belini.

A poor quality picture of the quality parents that made the weekend happen. Thanks so much mom and dad W for a great time!

The remaining single W boy. :)

Another poor quality photo. We skipped the fruity drink and had coffee with our breakfast. :)
All the while our dear Henny was bonding with Grandma G and Aunt Mol.

Last stop: Dev Bootcamp. Devin's future home for 9 weeks. The name similarity is just a coincidence.

Em, this is so fun! I love it that you were able to have that time with both families in such a short amount of time. Glad everyone seemed to be in good health and able to enjoy it. Isn't Wicked just the best?!?
