Our Babymoon to Chicago was a dream come true. Chicago is our "first city" so we really enjoyed going back and hanging out at all our favorite spots. We stayed in a historic hotel in Lincoln Park, near where we used to live. The room was overlooking the park, lake and city skyline. It rained the first day we were there, and then cleared up the rest of the weekend with crisp, sunny fall weather.
We saw David Gray in concert, and it was a great show! He played lots of our favorite songs like This Year's Love, Sail Away, Ain't No Love, Slow Motion and a new favorite World to Me.

Friday night we went to our FAVORITE Chicago restaurant, Brick's Pizza, and then we saw a show at The Second City comedy club. Classic date night in Chicago :)

We also did lots of walking around Lincoln Park, the zoo and gardens. One fun thing we did was recreate our *first photo* together. Here's the original from April, 2005 ...
And our re-creation in October, 2009 ...On Saturday night, we had a wonderful time catching up with our dear friends Sarah and Tom, Lauren and Alphonse, and Emily. We went to Trattoria Roma in honor of our study abroad semester in Rome, and then we checked out the new Trump Hotel & Tower, getting drinks and dessert at Rebar.
And a post these days wouldn't be complete without some belly shots ;)
