The Windy City

Here are the promised pictures of beautiful Chicago! We had an amazing time - I have determined that I would love to live there when I get older! The pastor of the church we were doing a revival at has a daughter, Becky, who offered to go with us downtown! It was nice to have a "tour guide"!

Waiting for the train at the station

Making our way outside

Where should we go first??




The Sears Tower


Looking at the gorgeous view from the 99th floor of the Sears Tower





We thought this sign was funny! We also saw one that said "No sightseeing"! =)




We ate at the amazing restaurant 'ESPNZone' - we had such a fun time there!






This police officer had quite the fan base - or maybe it was the horse....


No trip to Chicago is complete without stopping at the Chicago Blackhawks store!

Ready to head back

Nikki with some friends she made at church

With Becky, the pastor's daughter

Dad and Mom with the pastor and his wife, Mark and Paula

Also, the revival in Climbing Hill, Iowa went wonderful! Thank you for praying!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Chicago looks very clean for a big city. The architecture is very pretty - I love looking at big, intersting buildings.

Love the pictures. The view is simply beautiful (even though it is in the city) =)
I don't think I could live there. I'm a country girl through and through. :)

Girl....be careful what you wish for. Chicago isn't called the "Windy City" for nothing!! :)

Just wanted you to know that I'm blogging at a new address. Didn't want to leave you out of the loop. After all, we celebrate blogging anniversaries around the same time. :)

And Chicago is caled the windy city not necessarily because its windy byt because of the politicians. :-)
