Chicago Trip

Since we moved in Valpo, everyone has been telling us that we need to visit Chicago. So, on Saturday we went and oh I had missed living in a city with big building!(not as big though).
Our first stop was Chicago Illinois Temple  . We went there a little early for a session so we were able to take some pictures. The temple is beautiful. We were able to attend a session and we loved it. The Spirit in the House of the Lord is so powerful and I couldn't be any happier with our decision to go and spend some hours there.

Then it was about 1 o'clock and we really wanted to visit the bean, go walk in downtown , walk the pier and visit sky-deck(willis/sears tower). Since the thing I wanted to do the most was visit the Skydeck, we start driving from the temple there. No idea where it was, where to park or anything. First we went to the most famous Chicago pizza place ( according to one of the articles we read). The pizza was amazing!!!
Chicago is huge so we kind of got lost driving around until we found a parking garage. We parked literally 6-8 miles away from the tower. Besides that, we had to wait 4 hours to get to the main part of it. If you have never been to Chicago and want to visit Skydeck, buy a fast pass and go early. Seth and I were so upset that it was late and we spent all day just waiting. At the same time it was fun because we had each other. Here are some of the pictures we took there:

I am planning on doing a Part Two for tips when you are going to Chicago. Not that I am an expert, but learned a lot of lessons from this trip. Thanks guys for reading!!!
