Got back from Chi-town at about 2am today. What a great weekend.|
Flew in early on Saturday morning and Rich's grandmother took us to breakfast. good good food. Then hung out with Rich's cousin in Olrand Park. I about shit myself when i walked into Jewel Osco and saw all the liquor sitting there and there big walk in beer fridge. Had some beer then took the train into town for Venetian nights. Ate some dinner on Michigan then the craziest thing was that we ran into Becky. She knew i was coming up sometime this summer but had no clue it was that weekend. And she though she had seen me the night before. Went and picked up some Old Style and liquor and sat at Buckingham fountain and watched the boat parade/fireworks. Then we hopped on the red line up to division street. Went to a couple bars then ended up in Mothers. Had a lot of fun in there but had to head home because the last train left at 12:30. Sunday we caught the train into town and headed to wrigleyville. i got chills when i got off the train. i had to stop and look around a few times to remind me where i was. the game was great, drinking old styles was great, maddux didnt get his 300th but we won. hung out down there for awhile then headed back to the southside for dinner with Richs fam. woke up early sunday and went downtown. Went up in the sears tower, walked the magnificent mile, a couple walks around the loop, went to grant park, then to millinium park, then up to navy pier. what a great place, couldnt of asked for any better weather. to the orange line to midway then had dinner and picked up some old style at the grocery and then caught our flight back home. what a great weekend. this week is going to be excruciatingly boring. but im heading to the keys with anne's family and mine saturday for a week and then ill be in the D.C. area for a week before i drive back with johnny. then school starts. time is flying...
