Five on Friday: The Rest of the Chicago Pics!

Happy Friday all! Since it’s the last day of the week, I thought I would wrap-up my Chicago trip with pics in this post!

Five on Friday-Chicago Wrap-Up

1. Doughnut Vault

I checked off another donut shop from my 101 in 1001 list by visiting the Doughnut Vault. Not only was their decor just adorable, but the chocolate glazed donut was delicious! My mom got an old-fashioned donut and definitely enjoyed the chocolate one more, too πŸ˜‰

2. The Bean!

As true Chicago tourists, Mom and I visited Millennium Park to see The Bean! It truly shows the skyline of the city in an incredible way. We probably took more pictures of The Bean than anything else.

3. The Flowers

Gorgeous flowers line Chicago’s streets and populate their gardens! One of our Uber drivers said that a portion of the city’s taxes definitely go to beautification, and that’s very clear! As C’s mother is a huge fan of flowers and gardens, I sent her quite a few pictures throughout the weekend.

4. The Beach!

Was I the only person who didn’t know that Chicago had a beach? The water was so turquoise that I thought we were in the Caribbean! A beach in the middle of a fantastic city…you’re doing it right, Chicago.

5. Lincoln Park Zoo

If I’m on vacation and there is a nearby zoo, I’m absolutely going. It also helped that the Lincoln Park Zoo was on my 101 in 1001 list! The baby camel was just precious, and everyone laughed at the monkeys’ antics. I’m still getting over the fact that I didn’t know there were red pandas in the lion house, which we didn’t visit, since the lions were outside πŸ™ πŸ™
