Weekend Getaway Day 2

Here is day 2 of our Chicago trip! 

After having breakfast at Yolk we took a cab to the Adler Planetarium. This was actually my gift to Matt. He loves space related anything so I got him the book, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth. We had both heard that it was a great read and before I wrapped it up I put in a piece of paper talking about our day trip to Chicago that I planned. Lucky for us, both our Christmas presents to each other were pretty much the same thing so we were able to celebrate his gift as well on our trip.

 The Planetarium is kind of on its own little stretched out island so after we were done inside we walked around outside to see the city skyline and lake behind us. The city looked so still with all the blue and gray tones that winter brought. 

We headed back to the hotel and spent a good hour trying to figure out what to do and where to eat. We decided to just scroll through google maps and see what looked appetizing. When we saw that there was a Shake Shack in the city we had sealed the deal and didn't look anywhere else for dinner. We waited outside for a little while but it was definitely worth it. 

So that's the end of my Chicago trip! I didn't take as many pictures as I thought I would've. Spending time with each other kind of just over ruled our use with electronics those few days. I will be uploading a video of it all to my Youtube channel sometime this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
