Wade and I drove to Chicago last night after the barbeque. Wade tried to surprise me with a trip to Chick-fil-A (the only one near us is about 30 miles south of Milwaukee), but when we got to the address we realized it must be in the mall, which was closed. There was a Dairy Queen right across the street so we still go ice cream!
We had a late morning sleeping in and then went out for brunch. Wade loves his iPhone and one of his favorite features recommends restaurants close to you. We have to admit that Meli’s was a hit. Wade had french toast and I had chocolate chip pancakes.
The next stop was the Ford Theater. Wade and I had tickets to Wicked. The play was wonderful. I was amazed at how well the story ties in and explains items in the Wizard of Oz. Not to mention the completely different impression they leave you with on “wicked witch”.
Before heading back to Milwaukee we decided to visit Navy Pier. We walked around and ejoyed all of the free shows and sights.
