Keeping warm outside as the ceremony starts, and back inside to keep warm! Cooper was very overwhelmed by all of the people at the house, but he was very well behaved!

I got down their Friday night, so I really only had just over a day in Chicago, and we covered a lot of ground! We had a barbeque with her neighbors Friday night, saw the Univeristy of Chicago campus on Saturday (where she is getting her doctorate), went to China town and enjoyed amazing food and beverages, went to a Mexican festival celebrating the 200th year of Mexican independence, got Indian food, and eventually headed back to watch and movie and catch up on gossip! Sunday we went to the Museum of Science and Industry, got sushi, and then I was off back to Madison. I think we made very good use of our time, and I had a blast in Chicago!
Visiting the campus of the Univeristy of Chicago
We went to Chinatown and a Mexican festival, where Athma and I both got some fun stuff!
Cupcake shops are becoming very popular in Chicago, and so we had to go and out the newest shop (delicious!!). Then we went to the top of the Sears Tower to get a great view of Chicago!
We went to the Museum of Science and Industry and had a great time!
We ended by getting sushi before I headed back to Wisconsin. It was a very fun trip!

Cheese fondue. There was cheddar with beer (yum!) and swiss.
The meat that we got to cook. We ate all of it!
Our meat cooking away. It was hard to wait, it smelled so good!
Katie and I were designated dessert sharers. It was an amazing end to the fondue experience!
After dinner, we went for drinks on the rooftop of a bar called Solera, and then we spent most of our night dancing at Bootleggers, and then a little more fun (or too much for some) at the W (part of a hotel I believe). It was a blast! I was an old lady and went home a bit early, but considering I had a 4.5 hour drive home the next day by myself, I wasn't too upset to not be hungover the next day. It was a fun mini-road trip!
Looking forward to the wedding in August!

Unfortunately I didn't take many pictures, but here are a few from the lake! I also have one HILARIOUS story. I was trying to learn to waterski for roughly the first time, and without a doubt I sucked at it. So I kept falling and having to start over. We had decided to take Cooper with us on the boat, and he was doing just fine sitting in Tim's lap (who refused to try waterskiing... slacker). All of a sudden he realized I was in the water, and without notice he FLEW off the boat and swam to me! This dog has NEVER even jumped off of the dock into our arms, but in the middle of the lake he jumped off of the boat to come and save me! It was so cute, and I think a touch traumatizing for him! But he didn't seem to scarred by the experience, and he's enjoying being in the water more and more!
