It's huge. And seamless, as far as I can tell. It's kind of amazing, I can't figure out how it got there, but it reminds me of that terminator movie with the liquid metal guy.
You can walk underneath it and see your reflection from all kinds of different angles.
And here's our family pic:
After the bean (it has a more formal name, I'm sure, but frankly I don't want to look it up) we went to the Millennium Park fountain. (Which also has a more formal name, but again, so lazy tonight.)
|Don't these look like giant horse dragons? With fins?|
|Brandon opted to eat the chocolate off one bite at a time.|
|Jason dug right in. That thing was gone in about a minute.|
|Former Sears Tower. Currently the John Hancock Building. This was the site we bothered to find out the correct name.|
Last, but not least, I wanted to include this picture because I think it's sweet. Jason's favorite shirt is this blue striped one. He hides it from me when it's time to put it in the laundry. He asks to sleep in it. Then he asks to wear it again the next day. One day Brett was putting up laundry and Jason saw that Brett also has a blue striped shirt. Jason asked Brett if he could wear his blue shirt as well so they'd both have blue shirts and match. He's a sweet little man.
We are really close to Chicago, and would love to go there with people who come to visit us (hint, hint!) I promise we will eat the good Chicago food next time. :)
