Snacks on the 95th floor of the John Hancock building.
Snapped photos at Cloud Gate (aka the bean)
Strolled around the Lincoln Park Zoo. (Fun AND free = win)

House-browsed in the Gold Coast.
Took a boat tour on the river and along Lake Michigan.
Made my 2nd visit to The Doughnut Vault. (Even more delicious than I remembered)
Spent one Saturday morning at the Green City Market in Lincoln Park. Picked up local jams & spreads, vegetables. (All while sipping the best fresh raspberry soda I've ever tasted). Spotted these gorgeous sunflowers as well
Went to the brand new City Target.
Spent another Saturday at Randolph Street Market in the West Loop browsing antiques (affectionately referred to as "junk" by TG) and enjoying Jeni's salted caramel ice cream.
There's really nothing like summer in Chicago. I had such a good time showing them around the city I have come to love so much. We did, saw, and ate a lot. Quite frankly, I'm still recovering from all of the packed days they were here.
