Back from Chicago

Seeing family who we do not get to see often enough, having kids spend quality play time with their cousins, and fitting in some sightseeing – that’s my recipe for a good time in Chicago.

We took a portion of Easter week to visit my brother and his family. They reside in Windy City’s northern suburban area, from where we took daily trips to the Loop for various entertainment purposes. More social-networky among us even provided live commentary of our exploits.

We also chilled in the backyard, made a couple of local excursions, imbibed uncommon quantities of wine, and generally had a blast.

Pictures to follow. For starters, here is panoramic view of the city from the Shedd Aquarium.
