Millenium Park

After the Navy Pier walk, we headed into Grant Park and over into Millenium Park (which is a corner of Grand Park)

Not much crazy excitement, just a LOT of walking! But we did find the famous 'bean' we had heard about

And it was rather windy.

Then we walked and walked to find the Buckingham fountain.... but they had taken the water out already :-(

Then we waited, we were waiting until 5:00 so we could get into the Art Institute for free. We spotted a lady feeding squirrels and went over and sat on the steps.

Then a squirrel came up to us, looking for food. I couldn't believe how close this squirrel came. If I stuck my hand out he would be able to gnaw my fingers off!!

Then we went to the art museum.

Then it was time to head back home, our feet were KILLING us. We had Chicago style pizza for dinner at a place called Giordano's.
