Chicago Trip

I’ve been friends with these 4 girls for ever.  Two I met in high school and the other two in College. We are the best of friends, though we live in different cities, I must say, we do a really good job of keeping in touch.  However, we’ve never, all 5 of us, taken a “trip” all together.  So, last month we did it!  We took Chicago!  🙂

I can hardly express my love and respect for all of these girls.  They have helped me to be the person I am today, they make me laugh, they never judge, they are always always there for me, I can totally and completely just be myself around them.   I love them all, dearly.

Among the talking, laughing and drinking…we did a few touristy things too… This is the “Bean” at Millennium Park.

Navy Pier. And yes, we were complete dorks about getting photos together.  🙂

The Herbie Hancock Building.

And may I just break to tell you that all of these images were captured with this little daddy. We got this camera for Christmas and I hadn’t really had time to play with it much, other than the HD Video, which it does very well.  I was SO glad I brought this little camera! It was easy to take places and I didn’t have to, ah-hem, obsess over every picture (which I tend to do with my good camera). 🙂  Aaaaand I am super excited about the quality of the photos!  So, if you’re looking for a nice point and shoot, look here!  🙂

Okay, back to Chicago…This awesome water fountain…(What was it called, Em?) that we had to cross the Puerto Rician  parade to see, but totally worth it! 🙂

Random Me picts…

Oh! We got to see Second City!  It was AWESOME!!  Go to Chicago. See Second City!

We enjoyed a little, okay a lot, of nightlife.

Love love love these girls.

And I should also thank all of our amazing hubbies who stayed at home, doing fabulous daddy things, while us girls got to play for the weekend.  🙂  2013 is our next trip…I can hardly wait!  🙂

Aunt Shari - Jaime, love this post. Reminds me of my group of friends and all our trips. We still have a weekend or two every year (mostly at each others homes) and now we do a big weekend trip every 5 years. It is the best being with “the girls”.
