This might seem like a strange place to start for my three day trip to Chicago, but Whole Foods was certainly an interesting grocery store. I had heard about it but had never experienced it. While the prices were high, the variety of unusual foods made it a fun place to visit. This was the well stocked olive bar.

Chicago - Day 1
My sister Kim, brother Kent, and I traveled to Chicago to help our sister celebrate her 50th birthday. I think it is the first time we have ever gone anywhere together where our parents weren't there. We left Manhattan at 7:30am, got into O'Hare at 9:00am and took the train in to the stop closest to Darci's house. She lives in an interesting area called Bucktown which is just NW of downtown. The area has been renovated through the years she has lived there with new additions or remodels of old row houses each time I am there. She can see a lot of the downtown buildings from her patio on her rooftop such as the old Sears Tower, now the Willis Tower. I forgot my camera but am pretty pleased with the pictures off my new Droid Pro phone.
