Chicago in pictures...

We took a weekend trip to Chicago and no matter how many times we have seen the city we always find something new in it and even the old never gets stale, it just improves the quality of it... 
We stayed a few blocks off of Magnificent Mile and so even though it was a very short trip, we could squeeze a lot of sight seeing and strolling in it. 
We ended up eating almost 50% of our meals at the Corner Bakery Cafe, a really convenient place to grab a quick bite specially with kids or if you'd like to carry out something for a car/road picnic.

Reflection of Sun from Trump Tower,
love the contrast in building styles

A new addition, larger than life- Marilyn Monroe

The green spaces ground the skyscrapers so well
