Chicago -

Hey everyone - it's Thursday morning and we are headed to the convention center this morning for the first day of CHA - Jordan & I have been having a great time so far. We have mastered the El-Blue Line train and feel comfortable getting to and from the city now. It ia a amazing city - the architecture is gorgeous - tons of old buildings with wonderful texture and history.

We caught the train the first day to the Navy Pier - on Lake Michigan. Kind of like the waterfront in Seattle, but cooler! We ended up getting there right as the IMAX theatre was doing a red carpet Hollywood movie premiere of the new Batman flick. We joined the crowd and caught a glimpse of Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, and the director, Christopher Nolan.


We had dinner at Bubba Gumps - Run Forest Run! We went with the shrimp combo - this is J - shelling a shrimp:


Then yesterday we went back into town and explored Millenium Park and the Art Institute - so very cool!


We finished up the night with the Creative Imaginations Preview Party -- it was a game theme for their new Lego line. This is a fun shot of J with the balloon man!



Off to the show!
